...and that includes all of us at MIT." Read this Mashable.com article for more on the death of prominent programmer and hactivist, Aaron Swartz. I have the following thoughts and questions... what are yours?
1) Was MIT, JSTOR or the U.S. Attorney's office, who decided to pursue the case, most guilty? Guilty at all?
2) Do you believe that the U.S. Attorney's office committed "Judicial Overreach"? If so why? If not, why not?
3) If a hactivist somehow decided to target Teachers College Record's (TCR)archives, what legal actions would we take?
Finally... do you believe that Anonymous was right to target MIT?
From the above Mashable.com article:
"I want to express very clearly that I and all of us at MIT are extremely saddened by the death of this promising young man who touched the lives of so many," Reif wrote. "It pains me to think that MIT played any role in a series of events that have ended in tragedy."
