Although I never met Aaron, I am saddened by his passing. My deepest sympathies to his family and friends. I only know of Aaron through his work with the Demand Progress organization and his efforts in opposing SOPA/PIPA legislation. I, like he, believe that information should be free. I have written my Congressman urging him to begin a Congressional inquiry into the over-reaching by the United States Attorney for the District of Massachusetts.

May Aaron's memory be eternal, and may he rest in peace.

I have not known Aaron Swartz myself. But when I read the account of his death, and the mention of his father came up, it rang a bell in my mind. Now I realized that Aaron is the son of Bob Swartz with whom I worked with as a Japanese software distributor of his software company's many years before.
Being a father of a teenager myself, I can only send condolences to Mr. and Mrs. Swartz, and lament the untimely death of a young talented man. My prayers to the family and friends.

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.

Aaron, may your soul rest in eternal peace. To the Swartz family & friends left behind to mourn his loss, please accept my condolences and deepest sympathy during this difficult time. I pray that you will find comfort and healing from the outpouring of love from people all around the world. God bless you.
