and my own musing on the rising suicide rate among many armed force veterans etc.. etc..

He will not die in vain. Aaron's will is weak nonetheless.IMHO.

Inhumane Politics and one individual's vulnerability is intimately connected. In the age of Acquarius, how can we situate a proper balance for family, friends, public work, private belief system collectively and privately?

"on January 18th, it’s the one year anniversary of the blackout of Wikipedia" Isn't every Sunday should be a blackout day for self-reflection about how individual's creativity and curiosity can be so in vain, so in vain?

How she cope with her critics from all sides. Her list of 'enemies' were quite long and possibly still growing, I hope.

The Case of Aaron Swartz: Justice in the Cyber Age

Join us on February 20th, when Scott Horton, Christopher Soghoian, Trevor Timm and others discuss the Aaron Swartz case. We will be looking at the various implications of the Swartz tragedy. How can the law catch up with technology and innovation? Was the prosecution representative of law enforcement's behavior towards the hactivist community? Was it a symptom of the prosecutorial overreach present throughout the judicial system? Does the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act warrant reconsideration? Where does the issue of freedom of information fit into this - and other - cases? Should there be limits to freedom of information and how should we as a society assess those limits?

Wednesday, February 20th, 7:00 PM
