The recent death of Aaron Swartz has provoked a lot of commentary on the web so I thought I would gather some of it here. This is by no means an attempt to be comprehensive as the amount of commentary has been truly vast. I’ve tried to gather enough so that someone working through even a small selection of the posts would get a good idea of all the dimensions of the story. I’ve also tried to perhaps give a bit of a library/academia slant in the selection.

As usual with these compilations, readers should feel free to suggest further readings in the comments especially those that add a dimension that I’ve missed.

My own personal thoughts are here: Library vendors, politics, Aaron Swartz, #pdftribute

Some general resources.
