Aaron was a generous and intensely curious soul, and understood that cultural transmission of values should not always be mediated by a market mentality. The great moral and intellectual leaders of any generation aren't the Donald Trumps, the Steve Ballmers, the Larry Ellisons. No, they are not. Leaders who matter are those who are "struck dumb with the love of the world" (as Quinn Norton put it) and give astonishing gifts from their minds and hearts, out of an excess of love and energy. We have the markers (RSS, Creative Commons, Reddit, Demand Progress) that were borne from Aaron's creative ability to act, to empower, to move others.

Aaron was extraordinarily productive, creative and generous with his energies. We celebrate that, as we mourn, as we continue to advocate for the political and cultural causes that mattered to him.
