a picture is worth a thousand words

Aaron Swartz


This is my little tribute to Aaron Swartz. I’m sad because we did not have the opportunity to help him. I’m also very sceptical with this story, but I have to admit that I’m sceptical even with the sceptics.

For a few days I thought about how to pay tribute… with one of his quotes (love “there is no justice in following unjust laws”), with the most relevant words of wikipedia … but the words “forever free” always ended up in my head.

Probably because in the land of freedom it was his biggest fear, to remain free. I really think it was the weapon. But somehow he reversed the whole thing… he is now forever free. We will never forget you Aarom.
