The Legacy of Aaron Swartz

February 3rd, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

I have to admit that the first time I really recognised the person named “Aaron Swartz” was when I read the news of his permanent absence in this plane. Ever since then I stumbled upon software that he created and which are building blocks in my everyday life. Simple things like html2text as well as the framework web.py that I used to write my first webpage. Or whenever I use things like the Markdown language which is default on github, the format i write my text notes in and was substantially influenced by Aaron. Ohh – and RSS of course, and Reddit, and SOPA, and . . .
