I am so sorry, Aaron was a brilliant coder, even though Embedded Systems Programming was not his forte, he would send me code snippets for Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM), when he was a young teenager, that were better than I could write. My condolences, and deepest sympathies to Taren, his parents Robert and Susan, brothers Noah and Ben. May his soul now rest peacefully, safe from all that could harm him, and rise refreshed and joyful. ??? ????/? ????? ????? ????? - Robert J. Perillo Jr. and all the Perillo Familly

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.

Sometimes troubles become too much and fear takes over. (Eccl 7:7) We may never know what truly led to this unfortunate event but we do well to remember that in times of trouble we only need to pray for the peace of God that excels all thought to help us through it. (Phil 4:6,7)
With deepest sympathy,
ACC
