Product description

Review

"A kid genius ... Aaron was not just, or even primarily, a computer geek. His defining feature was a constant struggle for what he believed was right." - Lawrence Lessig "Aaron had an unbeatable combination of political insight, technical skill, and intelligence about people and issues. I think he could have revolutionized American (and worldwide) politics. His legacy may still yet do so." - Cory Doctorow "I always found it genuinely inspiring to watch Swartz exude courage and commitment at such a young age." - Glenn Greenwald "This volume makes clear what those of us who knew Aaron already grasped: when we lost Aaron, we lost one of the most exciting minds of our time." - Chris Hayes "We've lost a fighter. We've lost somebody who put huge energy into righting wrongs." - Sir Tim Berners-Lee "Swartz left behind an impressive body of writing that still has the power to rally others... Clear, well read and sourced" - Financial Times --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
