The Lauri Love Files Part 2

To Lauri with Love…

I was really humbled, when I was asked to write the follow up to Lauri Love pt.1. It’s been a joy getting to know him and the people running his campaign. I say this with all sincerity.  I’m a tad biased at this point, especially after reading the reams of legal documents in front of me. I want, you, the reader to make up your own mind. The only way for me to do that is try to put together a time line of events according to the indictments and the request for extradition. I will try and be as concise as I can. I will warn you its heavy reading. I just want to try and weed through the nonsense and stick with the facts, I could find. Basically everything in the three indictments; Southern District of New York, District of New Jersey, Eastern District of Virginia, and the extradition request. I want you to form your own opinion. Please bear with me I’m trying to do this is pieces so you are not as overwhelmed as I am.

All the allegations against Lauri Love took place between October 2012 and October 2013. I want to give a clearer time line then I have yet to see in Lauri’s case. I will start with allegations laid out in the three indictments. The Southern District of New York alleges Lauri used five different alias in IRC;  ‘nsh’,’peace’,’shift’,’route’, and ‘Smedley Butler’. The US District Court of New Jersey only lists three of the alias’; ‘nsh’,’route’, ‘peace’. The US Eastern District court of Virginia lists four alias’; ‘nsh’, ‘route’, ‘peace’,’shift’. I’m fraught to even bring this up, since much of the indictments refer back to chat room antics, I feel like I need to.

As  a reminder before this gets deep the alleged charges. In the Southern District of New York we have 2 counts, computer hacking and aggravated identity theft from The Federal Reserve. Before you freak out on me, this how New York does things, under seal,  basically the applicable laws are a footnote, yes it’s the usual cast of characters. The US district court of New Jersey, again different, it says 2 counts as well except listed under Count 1 are actually; The Engineer R&D Center Army Corps. of Engineers in Vicksburg Mississippi, The PAIO at  Aberdeen Proving Ground,Maryland, The Strategic Studies Institute, Carlisle, Pennsylvania, NETCOM Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland, Army Contracting Command Redstone, Alabama, The Missile Defense Agency, The FedCenter in conjunction with the EPA-OECA, & NASA. The US District Court of Eastern District of Virginia, 9 counts, Dept. of Health and Human Services, National Institute of Health, The FDA, The Regional Computer Forensic Lab of the FBI, The Department of Energy, Deltek, Inc., Forte, Inc, and victims D.P., J.E, B.H., J.K residents of the Eastern District of Virginia.

If you feel like you suddenly been transported into a John Grishman novel… Wake up!!! There’s more!!!

Since not all the allegations are dated, some of the them actaully refer back to IRC Chat. If there wasn’t a date, I had to refer to the IRC dates. Something I have struggled with and I refuse to get into. It’s IRC. We all the know the bravado, the trolls, the idiot kids that can randomly stumble in, it’s IRC. For the true tech people out there, this all seems to stem from an Adobe Program Cold Fusion. I am not a tech person and really don’t know what vulnerabilities the system was too known to have had at the time this is alleged to have happened.

Now for the timeline which all took place between October 2012 through October 2013. From I can piece together from the indictments here’s the list :

October 2 2012 through October 9 2012 :

Southern District Court NY: The Federal Reserve NY and IL

District Court of NJ: Engineer R&D Center

Netcom & Ft. Monmouth NJ

Army Contracting Command  Alabama

Army Corps MD

Plans & Analysis Integration Office MD

Missile Defense Agency

*** Eastern District Court of Va is vague on dates and any exact dates are from IRC. There is also a chart listed under count 2-7 with Dates. I am going to use that chart for VA.

   The Department of Health and Human Services including HRSA, NIH,& FDA

United States Sentencing Commission

The Regional Computer Forensics Lab

Department of Energy

Deltek, INC ( government contractor)

Forte Interactive, IN ( government contractor)

The 4 victims : D.P., J.E, B.H, and J.K

Now it starts to pick up again in December of 2012 through Feb 2013:

December 23 2012 – January 3, 2012:  

DIstrict Court of NJ:Engineer R&D Center Morris County, NJ & Parsippany, NJ

December 24 2012: 

Eastern District Court of VA:

US. Dept. of Health & Human Services

December 25 2012:

Eastern District Court of VA

United States Sentencing Commission

January 3, 2013:

District Court of NJ:  The Fed Center EPA-OCEA

January 11, 2013: 

District Court Of NJ:

Strategic Studies Institute

Eastern District Court of VA:

FBI-Regional Computer Forensics Lab

Hopefully you can follow this and hopefully you are all still with me because this isn’t over yet. This is just information from the indictments. Now comes a really big gap in dates. All of the sudden we are in July 2013.

July 3 2013:

Eastern District Court of VA:

Deltek, INC. ( Government IT Contractor)

The 4 victims D.P, J.E., B.H., and J.K

July 10, 2013:

District Court of NJ:

NASA

July 24, 2013:

US Department of Energy

August 14,2013:

Forte Interactive (Government Contractor)

I will say there’s so much more if you read through indictments on you own. I’m just trying to bring some order to the chaos. Hopefully I did with just sticking to the dates and the alleged agency’s involved. Our government alleges that these attacks dumped hundreds of thousands documents, personnel files and credit card information. Inserting backdoor, the list is just never-ending. Which most of the “data dump” is too have take place in 7 days by one person on a couple of laptops. I used to be gamer, I’ve built my own machines for gaming, this just seems inhumanly possible, for one person to have done. Ok maybe the IBM Chess computer.

This person is Lauri Love. A 32-year-old man, with severe health issues, with Aspergers Syndrome and depression. This is just not a man with depression but According to Professor Michael Kopelman testimony in the extradition “..Mr. Love was on the verge of psychosis and was clinically depressed,” This is when he was examined in 2012. Professor Kopelman went on to say Mr. Love continues to describe features of depression and the hallucinations to kill himself. This sound like someone capable of doing this? This is just a couple of words from one of the doctors who testified. Even our prison Doctors are against this extradition, we have no one who can care for someone with AS. Lauri will be put in solitary on suicide watch with another prisoner guarding him from killing himself. He couldn’t handle going away to university, his father had to go retrieve him for fear of killing himself.

The assurances made by our Government as to his safety and the steps that would be taken to ensure he was cared for, won the day. The cost of having the trial in the U.K. seemed to outweighs Lauri’s fragility. The rule of speedy trail was in there but we all know the dockets are so full that never happens, with the current charges in 3 states, how can it.

Lauri will be the first person from the U.K. ever extradited under the 1990 law. 114 MP’s signed a petition to President Obama calling for the end to this extradition. Yet, it’s still been signed off on, by Amber Rudd MP. Lauri faces no charges in the U.K., in fact all evidence collected by the authorities has been returned except one laptop, they can’t break the encryption on.

I know the law is supposed to be fair and just. I cannot for the life of me find the justice in this.

v.

Lauri Alexander Love

__________________________

<0> <0>

Part 1.0

The United States is seeking to extradite Lauri Alexander Love due to indictments in three different American states New Jersey, Virginia and New York for hacking and computer fruad among other charges.

Court papers go on to refer to Lauri Love as a “sophisticated hacker”. This is the United States Department of Justice trying to paint a picture of Lauri Love that is not reality, repeatedly throughout court papers we researched the United States government sought to do nothing else but to destroy Lauri Love’s chracter and demonize him.

The DOJ also criticized Lauri Love and his family for amping up online support against his extradition. The DOJ also is refusing to allow Lauri Love any discoveries involving his case. This is a grotesque violation of his civil rights and extraditing him to the United States to face charges will only exasperate the constitutional infractions and trample all over his rights as a human nevermind what country he’s from or citizenship he ordains that’s irrelevant.

Prisons in the United States whether state or Federal hassle attorney’s upon visitation and they do have law libraries but these are often backed up due to high volume of request or lack of having the staff which is why if extradited to the United States Lauri Love will not be awarded a fair and equal trial, in fact he faces the very opposite. He is not even in the United States yet and already they are violating his civil rights, what do you think will happen when he is in U.S. costody?

One of the bars that has to be considered by a judge ruling on an extradition is whether or not the reasons the country seeking the extradition are otherwise motivated as in is this a proverbial witch hunt or is the United States extraditing Lauri Love for the proper reasons. Let me state clearly; I don’t think a judge in any country prisiding over any rule of law cannot conclude that this extradition is improperly motivated, the only explanation is corruption.

Lauri Love did not intend to inflict on the American public or our government any actual harm surely if he did have ill intentions he would have acted on them. If he is this cyber terrorist the United States Justice Department is trying to paint him as then where are the terroristic cyber hacks? The man was inside the United States Missle Defense System and did nothing but we are supposed to believe he is some governmentally proclaimed enemy of the state?

U.S. Attorney Fishman. “As part of their alleged scheme, they stole military data and personal identifying information belonging to servicemen and women. Such conduct endangers the security of our country and is an affront to those who serve.”

U.S. Attorney Fishman, did Lauri Love release the names of any servicemen or women? Were any United States servicemen or women harmed or put in actual danger by Mr. Love’s actions? The only real crime is if Lauri Love where to actually release the data the United States Justice Department wants us to believe he stole. To say Lauri Love put the lives of service men and women in any danger whatsoever is not only hearsay, but it’s complete and utter propaganda spewed by Mr. Fishman to further demonize Lauri Love into this criminal figure or sophisticated computer hacker as (he) likes to say.

“The borderless nature of Internet-based crime underscores the need for robust law enforcement alliances across the globe. We appreciate the bilateral support of the National Crime Agency in bringing cyber criminals.” said Daniel Andrews, director of the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command’s Computer Crime Investigative Unit.” This investigation shows the necessity and value of strong partnerships among law enforcement agencies worldwide in the fight against cyber criminals,” said FBI Special Agent in Charge Aaron T. Ford. “Cybercrime knows no boundaries, and without international collaboration, our efforts to dismantle these operations would be impossible.”

No gentlemen what all this sounds like is empirical New World Order, an all seeing cohesive international eye monitoring our online activities and then throwing the legendary wolf in a sheep mask wearing a black robe disguised as the United States Department of Justice at you and your left with no option, but to subdue to their demands plea bargain down and pray your not sentenced to a century.

This is not law and order, this is not liberty nor peace or freedom of speech, this is unconstitutional and couldn’t be further from justice. These are un-American acts grotesquely perpetrated by pure totalitarianism and the heavy hand of the American Judicial System and their pursuit to tyranny. We as United States citizens cannot continue to allow our countries Federal governmental agencies to continue their empirically motivated modern day crusade against our geniuses just because they point out flaws in our national security or because they make our government look fuckin stupid, you mad bro?

I find it extremely unsettling that the United States government wants to talk an awful lot about the data Lauri Love allegedly stole except for when it comes to the data involving research institutions.

We must stand up against this extradition and stop letting our Nations leaders give all Americans a bad name. Are we empirical beings? Do we not believe in real justice? Are we totalitarians hell bent on tyranny? No. We are not, then why should we allow our government to be tyrants in our name and on our dollar?

General
#ChildRape #Pedophilia #ChildAbuse is being revealed to be occurring in epidemic proportions. As Adrian’s case shows the very agencies charged with protecting our children (State Child agencies, FBI, Local Police, State and Federal Governments) are either ignoring or participating in the abuse of our children.
Knowing this horror exists,the moral responsibility lies with each one of us, to make the safety and wellbeing of our children the Number One priority in our lives. First step is to educate yourself that this evil can and does exist. Simply Google #ChildTrafficking #PedophiliaNetworks #TheFranklinCoverup #MissingDCGirls #ElitePedophiliaRings After educating yourself speak with family members, clergy, local police, local government, everybody and anybody that will listen. The only way this dark cancer will be eradicated is by each individual shining a bright light of truth until this darkness is fully exposed. This abomination cannot exist in the light of day

Message from @EFF this is #OurInternet 

Dear Friend of Digital Freedom,

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai has made a dangerous proposal to destroy the FCC’s net neutrality rules—the very same rules that keep Internet providers like Comcast, Verizon, and AT&T from choosing which websites you can and can’t access and how fast those websites will load. But before he can enact this terrible plan, he has to make the proposal publicly available and accept comments from regular people about how it would affect them. That’s where you come in.

We’ve launched a new tool to send your unique comment to the commission: DearFCC.org. Simply answer a few questions about why the Internet is important to you, and we’ll help you send your message to the FCC.

Net neutrality is fundamental to our democracy. We can’t let Comcast, AT&T, and Verizon monopolize the Internet and decide which websites we’re allowed to access. At a time when many people across the country have only one choice for high-speed broadband Internet access, customers have no way of holding ISPs accountable. The clear, light-touch rules enacted by the FCC in 2015 are our best hope for protecting a free and open Internet.

Let’s send Chairman Pai a message: this is our Internet andwe’ll fight to protect it.

Take Action


Save net neutrality

Thank you,

The Aaron Swartz Files

asfiles123221222

In 1986 Aaron Hillel Swartz was born in Highland Park Illinois to Susan and Robert Swartz. Aaron had two brothers Benjamin and Noah, his father who was the founder of the Mark Williams Company, given this, it’s easy to see where Aaron had adapted his love for technology. Robert Swartz bought the family a computer when Aaron was just 4 years old and by age 7 Aaron had coded a trivia game about the famed game Donkey Kong that he and his brother played regularly. Aaron embodied the Net as if it was part of him or an extension of his being, from a young age the Net was his safe place, a place where his age or popularity had no relevance only the intellectual views and opinions of his extraordinary mind were valued. Aaron was helping to build Creative Commons as young as age 9. He was a prodigy, a kid genius, we knew at that time he would change the world, but I don’t think anyone could have imagined Aaron would touch each every one of our lives the way he did.asfiles333333333

At  just age 13 Aaron was awarded the ArsDigita Prize which is awarded to young people who create “useful, educational and collaborative” non-commercial websites. Less than a year later at age 14, he was a member of the working group that authored RSS which uses a family of websites to publish frequently updated information including blog entries, news headlines, audio, and videos. RSS enables publishers to syndicate data automatically.

asfiles232323232

Aaron founded Infogami which later merged with the popular social news site Reddit and watchdog.net, help create DeadDrop and created web.py. In 2010, he founded DemandProgress.org and the Progressive Change Campaign Committee to rally the internet masses behind stopping SOPA and PIPA from passing into law, he opened doors that had long been closed behind PACER and freed information on a massive scale with The Internets Open Archive. He completed a fellowship at Harvard’s Ethics Center Lab on Institutional Corruption. To say he’s a hero is a gross understatement, what little exist of our Internet Privacy today is due in large part to the sacrifices Aaron made to defend the fragile existence that is our internet privacy. He risked his freedom along with everything he ever held close to him and volunteered to become a martyr for information, to me personally Aaron Swartz is a Saint, he dangled himself in front of a wolf in sheep’s clothing better known as our Justice System, not for personal profits or political hoopla nor his own secret agenda he did all this, for us.

aasasasasasasas00909

These are the Arron Swartz Files

I personally have investigated this case since the day it happened I remember waking up to alerts chiming, I checked my messages and found out that Aaron had committed suicide, yes that Aaron the inspiration to every aspect of the WEDA Coalition was gone, the extraordinary machine that was his heart was no longer beating. I was beside myself, Aaron brought a lot of us hope and when they took him from us that hope was lost as well. Was this the United States goal all along? To stymie a revolution? SOPA or the Stop Online Piracy Act which if passed would have everlasting negative effects on our internet privacy. Thankfully Aaron founded DemandProgress.org and led the charge against the Motion Picture Association of America the largest political PAC’s in existence. Which set up a David v.s. Goliath battle for the ages with Aaron Swartz riling up the Internet masses to vote against SOPA and the Motion Picture Association of America who was pumping obscene amounts of money into getting SOPA passed into law clashing, MPAA failed miserably because people hit the streets in protest and slowly but surely the congressional approval of SOPA was reversed by the will of the People.

asfiles14545445444.jpg

In being that voice behind the failure of a Bill in which billions of dollars were invested, Aaron became a target as did others like Kim Dot Com and countless other people who were doing nothing but utilizing their voices to condemn gross violations of our privacy rights. Aaron was placed on a list no different from a Terror Watchlist, he was hunted, harassed and subpoenaed into debt not mention the public embarrassment of his trial and the morbid thought of being labeled a felon. All these could be seen as viable reasons why such an extraordinary machine would choose to turn himself off, but it is in my personal opinion that although these are things that caused him great pain I do not believe that Aaron would kill himself for reasons such as the ones mentioned. I reject the notion that he was depressed before his death and deem this to be a story peddled by the establishment to weaken their own faults in the death of Aaron Swartz.

First Chair prosecutor, in this case, was a woman by the name of Carmen Ortiz a brutish predator and relentless character assassin who belittled and drained Aaron mentally, physically and financially. In researching this case you would think Aaron stole millions from the Federal Reserve, I would argue the information he was freeing and the close doors that the government has had sealed shut for a long time, that he was opening were far more threatening than the $5.000 in damages he caused to both MIT and JSTOR combined. It’s preposterous to proclaim that this case was about damages, it was about chopping the proverbial “head off the snake” and the “snake” was the movement that Aaron was starting, about the knowledge he was freeing and about the words he spoke, not for one second was this case ever about hacking or protecting MIT’s network it was always about turning off the extraordinary machine we knew as Aaron Swartz. Quinn Norton while being interrogated by FBI agents looked them in their eyes and said “You guys are on the wrong side of history” I would like to further that and say that the DOJ and MIT are also both on the wrong side of history.

“A vivid illustration that bureaucracies, once they get started, continue doing whatever mindless thing they’ve been set up to do, regardless of whether the people in them particularly want to do it or whether it’s even a good idea.” – Aaron Swartz

Fall of 2010

Aaron Swartz began downloading documents from JSTOR using MIT’s network, however, MIT did not know the identity of the of the person or group involved in downloading reams of data from JSTOR’s network. MIT claims Aaron engaged in this activity on three occasions that MIT had documented involving millions of JSTOR documents being downloaded from MIT’s server. MIT at the time was actively trying to locate and identify the person or group responsible because downloads of this scale from MIT violated the license agreement JSTOR and MIT had. According to court documents, MIT’s network was used by someone at MIT, presumably Aaron on September the 25th and the 26th. Also on October 9th and for an extended period between November of 2010 and January 6th the same day Aaron was arrested. Before his arrest he kept accessing JSTOR’s network and downloading files at what a JSTOR technician said was an “abnormal” rate they blocked Aarons IP address from being able to access their database on three separate occasions that coincide with the documented times Aaron used MIT’s network to download files from JSTOR, first on September 26th, 2010 then on October 2nd, 2010 and on January 4th 2011 two days prior to his arrest. The event in October led to JSTOR blocking access as a whole to MIT’s network for three full days, downloading files from JSTOR’s database using MIT’s network at such a massive volume raised a “profound” risk to JSTOR’s network and violated the licensing agreement between MIT and JSTOR. All these facts are evident and should be uniformly accepted, but JSTOR censored Aaron and censoring a pirate is just as bad as stealing their gold, Did Aaron violate JSTOR’s terms of services? Yes, but so do you when you say your 5’8′” and you really are 5’9″ and you sign up for some dating site. Aaron wasn’t stealing documents to make a bookstore he was doing it to free information. The question isn’t whether or not Aaron committed a felony when he downloaded more 80% of JSTOR’s database, it’s whether or not he was on the right or the wrong side in history when he committed this “crime”.

Aaron Swartz is arrested in Massachusetts by Cambridge police next to the campus of MIT. He was charged with breaking and entering which is a felony, Aaron makes bail shortly thereafter. July 14th, 2011 nearly 7 months later Aaron Swartz is indicted on six counts in Middlesex Superior Court and 4 counts in Federal court on two separate occasions, on July 14th, 2011 and November 18th, 2011. The government dragging court proceedings on and on is a common tactic but just because it’s common doesn’t make it any less disgusting. It’s mentally debilitating to have the weight of the United States Department of Justice sitting on your chest for any amount of time, but they purposefully drag out cases only to weaken the prey they are hunting, they make sure they are that heavy burden your shoulders will never be able to shake. to be indicted by the Federal government is in of itself psychological war being launched on you and everything you love.

The state of Massachusetts dropped their 6 count indictment and the Federal indictment was superseded the revised indictment was an astonishing 13 count federal indictment. A 13 count federal indictment and he didn’t hurt a fly, he didn’t harm MIT or JSTOR’s network, the files he took were being used for profit, a means for in which these Academic Journals were never meant to be used for, but Aaron is the criminal? I beg of any law professor to please underline for me where Aarons acts justify the actions carried out by the Office of Carmen Ortiz and the DOJ as a whole?

October 5th, 2012

In a court document, Swartz claimed MIT violated its own policy by providing the Secret Service with details and logs of his activity without warrant or subpoena. MIT’s lawyers argued that they did not violate their own policy because their private policy did not include the word “any” when speaking of data in their private policy, sad thing is they won their petty argument which only goes on to further the blatant corruption filled crusade that was launched on Aaron Swartz and his family.

The government files their response, Judge Nathaniel M. Gordon ruled that the personal data about Aaron’s comings and goings on MIT’s network are not to be thrown out and will be heard in full. It’s at this moment that I believe in my own personal opinion that Aaron felt the wind was being taken out of his sails before the trial even began. It’s demonically ironic that Aaron was being prosecuted for in a sense violating private policy or terms and conditions of JSTOR and MIT, but it’s perfectly justifiable for MIT to violate their own policies?

Aaron filed a response simply asking the court for more time to give his rebuttal to the government’s response in which Judge Nathaniel M. Gordon granted him and the trial was postponed another month. Although it is Swartz asking for more time in this instance we have to take into account just how long the DOJ and more specifically the office of Carmen Ortiz has dragged this case on. Aaron was arrested in 2010, Aaron’s last submitted court document was December 2nd, 2012 nearly 3 years later. Why is the DOJ dragging Aaron’s case on and on? To weaken him financially, mentally and physically. I will point out once again that this was never a case about damages especially when those damages only amount to 5,000 dollars, this was a witch hunt, a common era crusade dead set on burning Aaron at the stake and making an example out of him not on finding justice by any means or protecting MIT’s network.

NOWWWWWW

“The tragic and heartbreaking information you received is, regrettably, true,” -Aaron Swartz’s attorney Elliot R. Peters told The Tech

In the early hours of this dreadful Friday in January Aaron Swartz flipped the switch off on the extraordinary machine that was his life, why he did this will be a mystery we all take to our own graves. I’m certain I have never asked myself why so many times in a single day before. Aaron always finished what he started and when we look at all he started we must conclude that Aaron was not done. It is up to us to finish what he started, to complete his projects and to never ever let his name be forgotten.

It is in this coalition’s collective opinion that Aaron Swartz is not with us today because of the actions carried out by the United States Department of Justice and it’s horrible continuous systematically feigning justice system. Who sought nothing else but to destroy who we now know as “The Internets Own Boy” and his family, to bankrupt them and deprive them of their own peace of mind whilst violating the sovereignty of their privacy as a whole, they were no longer citizens, they were targets. Why were many of Aaron’s friends and family interrogated by FBI agents? In a case where the prosecution offered six months jail time? I would say an “abnormal” rate and not because he stole money or credit card numbers, he stole academic journals, journals that were never published for profit, these journals are still being monopolized by this one site, JSTOR. Why should knowledge cost a penny? Is it because the powers that be want us to be stupid sheep blindly being led to slaughter?

MIT is equally if not more responsible for the death of Aaron and this Coalition is collectively disgusted by your actions. How dare, an Institute such as yourselves disband such an extraordinary person? To literally stop the evolution of technology and the freedoms of information in their tracks instead of being the driving force behind them? After what you did to Aaron that is your legacy, a mere establishment University being puppets to the powers that be. With just one piece of paper, you could have ended this crusade before it began instead you consciously chose to vilify Aaron even though the total damages to MIT and JSTOR combined was only $5,000. Any and all active administration officials at MIT during the Aaron Swartz case lied to the Swartz family when they told the Swartz family personally, that they had been subpoenaed, which is why they gave Aarons personal MIT login times. Court records show MIT was subpoenaed after Aaron Swartz was arrested. MIT lied to the Swartz family and the public when they claimed they had no contact with the U.S. DA’s office yet later admitted that they asked the government for no jail time in Swartz’s case, which would mean that MIT had conversations with the prosecutor about how much time Aaron Swartz should or shouldn’t receive. That Hal Abelson’s own inquiry proves MIT lied to the public and Hal Abelson purposefully deceived the public in his inquiry. With no due respect, your investigation was not independent and heavily steered away from chastising MIT at all which is why president Rafael Reif would announce in advance that the inquiry would be made public leaving it to be forever tainted in the public eye because the thought of MIT publicly criticizing themselves is laughable. MIT failed to secure what they claim is a restricted closet, it underlines laughing-out-loud at security, to prosecute Aaron for pointing out the flaws and outright stupidity that is MIT’s network is redundantly inhumane. Hacking was born on the very network you boldly stand by, you hold hackathons, teach students how to pick locks, ordain your institution on the pursuit of furthering technology, you invite free thought and expression, your institute is sought by aspiring students who believe in these values and you shattered all of that in one heinous act, MIT should feel nothing, but shame and complicity in the death of Aaron Swartz.

To the Swartz Family

Aaron was a lot of things to many of us, but he was yours first. Everything the world thinks they may know about Aaron, you know more. All of our collective pain combined is a fraction of the pain you feel, you created a child that turned the world upside down whilst speeding up its evolution. Your son may not be here today, but what he created will always be here, the codes he wrote are used on a daily basis, he created a perpetually growing legacy and if something is growing, then it can not be dead. It is our duty and our moral imperative to finish what Aaron started, to continue to pursue the freedoms of information and protect our Internet as we know it because “Information is power. But like all power, there are those who want to keep it for themselves.”
