Worth reading to get more insight on the recent suicide of a brilliant young man. The Truth about Aaron Swartz’s “Crime”.
We’re discussing how this reflects on copyright issues in my Social Media class forum at Drury University. More to come on that front.

Mine are ambiguous – how do creatives support themselves in an open access free information system with no copyright protections?
