Github repository for Aaron Swartz memorials

Brian Guthrie writes,

Aaron was a tireless supporter of the open internet and an old-school hacker. To honor his memory and his contributions to technical community, Aaron's family and friends wanted to provide a way to share their memories that:

* uses free and open source software wherever possible
* licenses its content under the Creative Commons
* is open to the technical community to hack on and contribute to
* leverages tools that Aaron used and contributed to, like Markdown and RSS

If you'd like to contribute, please fork the repo on Github and get hacking. You can also email your thoughts to, and we'll shift them onto the website as quickly as possible.

  1. Its called the Swartz flatline but the MPAA have it locked up in a vault. We just need to equip Carrie-Anne Moss with a telepresence unit so that we can bust it out and use it to launch an attack from the ISS on the Brazilian google data center.
