How Aaron Swartz Caught the FBI's Attention

How Aaron Swartz Caught the FBI's Attention | An Eye on New Media | Scoop.it
In May 2006, Aaron Swartz wrote a blog post titled “The Book That Changed My Life.” The book in question, Understanding Power, is a series of transcribed discussions with the MIT linguist Noam Chomsky in which Chomsky analyzes and explains the ways in which political power is wielded, acquired, and guarded. “Reading the book, I felt as if my mind was rocked by explosions. At times the ideas were too much that I literally had to lie down,” Swartz wrote. “Ever since then,” he continued, “I’ve realized that I need to spend my life working to fix the shocking brokenness I’d discovered.”
Ken Morrison's insight:

I have shared articles with Swartz deemed a hero or victim. Here is an alternative article to add to the mix in which his more sloppy sides are shown.
