Aaron Swartz: Entire scientific heritage is locked up

Aaron SchwartzAaron Swartz’s goal was bringing public access and share knowledge. Open access to academic journals for everyone, because “The world’s entire scientific and cultural heritage is locked up by a handful of private corporations”. In 2013 the 26-years-old internet activist Aaron Swartz committed suicide, suffering under the absurd prosecution by the US government, carrying a penalty of 35 years in prison. 
Aaron was one of the developers of RSS feed at 14 years old, co-founder of social newssite Reddit and co-author of Creative Commons.
