As many of you already might know, Aaron Swartz, computer genious, internet activist and reddit co-founder, commited suicide on the 11th of january 2013.
The story is a tragic one, he was found hanged in his appartment by his girlfriend.

For those of you unfamiliar with him and his actions, here is a link to the wikipedia page concerning him and his life:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aaron_Swartz

And here is a memorial page:

I believe this deserves a notification here at the AGN forums, let us never forget him and everything he did for a free internet and our online rights.

R.I.P
Aaron Swartz
1986 - 2013
