Tom Foremski on the ‘canonization’ of Aaron Swartz

Monday, January 28, 2013

Journalist Tom Foremski, who blogs at Silicon Valley Watcher, says that the canonization of young Internet activist and Reddit co-founder Aaron Swartz, who committed suicide two weeks ago in Brooklyn, looks inevitable. And judging from his first-hand account of the memorial service for Swartz at San Francisco’s Internet Archive building last Thursday, the effort has already begun.

Swartz’s death came against the backdrop of his facing prosecution on felony hacking charges.
