    Aaron Swartz

    Jew Score:



    November 8, 1986 – January 11, 2013

    Aaron Swartz helped make the Internet what it is today. He contributed to the creation of RSS, Creative Commons, and Reddit. He was a proponent of an open, free, unregulated Internet.

    Regulation of the Internet killed Aaron Swartz.

    Swartz was downloading academic journals at MIT. Apparently, that was a big no-no, even though he was a fellow at Harvard, which provided access to MIT's repository. In any case, Swartz was arrested, indicted, and prosecuted.

    And Swartz couldn't take it. Faced with a brutal legal battle and potential 50 years in jail, he took his own life.

    Was it worth it, Internet regulators?

    Verdict: Jew.
