Aaron, RIP

Bob Young & Aaron Swartz

There is no way to express the sadness of this day. There will be many words, eventually, to express its anger. This story will infuriate you. For now, to the co-creator of RSS, of the Creative Commons architecture, of part of Reddit, and of endless love and inspiration and friendships, rest. We are all incredibly sorry to have let you down.

Jesus. He was 26. So much brilliance and passion. We are diminished today.
