Event Details

Celebrate the life of Aaron Swartz, computer programmer, co-founder of Reddit and internet activist who passed away on January 11, 2013, at the Internet Archive in San Francisco on January 24, 2013.

Free, but RSVP is required.

All are welcome to a reception at 7pm and memorial service at 8pm.

From Internet Archive’s Eulogy:
“Working at the Internet Archive, Aaron was the architect and first coder of the OpenLibrary.org a site to open the world of books to the Internet generation. As a user of the site, he helped put public domain books on the site that had been locked up. Public access to the Public Domain, while seems obvious is not the position of many institutions, and this caused friction for Aaron.”
