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.”
