Anger grows over the death of Aaron Swartz

Re: Comparing Turing to Swartz? Complete FAIL!

"If his "brilliance" consisted of writing the RSS spec, that's pretty trivial. But some people have rather low standards of birilliance."

It's not that he wrote the spec, but more at the age he wrote it. Besides, his activism and pursuits for noble causes - in particular - at such a young age lend more to his brilliance than co-authoring the RSS specs.

Facebook, rather than creating another platform to garden wall their users should be spending more time or standardising an API for cross platform communication with other social media platforms. Users should not be restricted to just one app/platform, but rather be able to communicate across them all (a bit like email and phone calls).
