Dataaktivisten Aaron H. Swartz är död. Hans självmord har väckt
uppmärksamhet i hela världen.

Bakgrunden är ett åtal för att ha hackat tidskriftsdatabasen JSTOR,
ett biblioteksinitiativ fyra miljoner artiklar han hotades av 4 miljoner
dollar i böter och två livstidsstraff.

Klipp ur Vr-Zone:

His family and friends knew Swartz as a programming genius and a very
kind person.  In addition to helping co-found the popular Reddit.com
news site, he also helped write the highly popular RSS 1.0
specification when he was only 14 years of age.  In his adult life,
Swartz became somewhat of an Internet activist and as a driving figure
behind stopping the SOPA and PIPA censorship bills that went before
Congress.

Swartz was also highly involved with the on-line Avaaz Foundation
civic group, which pioneered Internet activism often time referred to
as ‘clicktivism’.  The Avaaz group, which began in 2007, was highly
active in promoting human rights, combating poverty and ending
regional conflicts in third world nations.  In just five years' time,
the group became the most powerful on-line activist network of its
type.

JSTOR motsatte sig åtalet men en domstol drev det vidare

Ironiskt nog meddelade JSTOR i förra veckan att man gör 4,5 miljoner
artiklar fritt tillgängliga

This is a major expansion of the Register & Read program, following a
10-month test, during which more than 150,000 people registered for
access to an initial set of 76 journals. The new additions bring more
than 4.5 million articles from nearly 800 scholarly societies,
university presses, and academic publishers into the Register & Read
offerings.
