*appears briefly in KC*

I regret to inform the LF community that last Friday Aaron Swartz has comitted suicide at age 26.

You may have heard of him as being the co-founder of the popular site, reddit. While I'm not personally a fan of its denizens and their sometimes nastily partisan political views, I stand for their right to voice their opinions on that site just as I would for any of you here.

What makes this significant is that he was one of the major people fighting against SOPA and PIPA. I well recall the internet blackout day in response, and several of you here have made clear your presence in the fight for internet freedom. Please take a moment of silence to honor the memory of this courageous fellow.

You may read about it here:

Now I shall retreat once again from KC.
