Web activist Aaron Swartz, charged with hacking MIT, dies at age 26

“Aaron dead. World wanderers, we have lost a wise elder. Hackers for right, we are one down. Parents all, we have lost a child. Let us weep,” read a tweet from the account of Tim Berners-Lee, creator of the World Wide Web. Swartz was an activist for free and open information on the Internet. At age 14, he helped develop RSS, a system that quickly distributes updated Web pages to other websites or people.
