Quote:
"Aaron did more than almost anyone to make the internet a thriving ecosystem for open knowledge, and to keep it that way," wrote Peter Eckersley from the California-based activist group Electronic Frontier Foundation.

David Moon of Swartz's anti-internet censorship group Demand Progress said the hacktivist "refined advocacy for the progressive and open-information movement."

Swartz, who was just 14 when he co-developed the RSS feeds that are now the norm for publishing frequent updates online and went on to help launch social news website Reddit, was found dead in his New York apartment on Friday.
