In his too-short life, Aaron Swartz reshaped the Internet and questioned our assumptions about intellectual property. His tragic suicide in 2013 at the age of 26 after being aggressively prosecuted for copyright infringement shocked the world. Here, for the first time in print, is revealed the quintessential Aaron Swartz: besides being a technical genius and a passionate activist, he was also an insightful, compelling and cutting essayist. He wrote thoughtfully and humorously about intellectual property, copyright and the architecture of the Internet.
