Global Hackathons Prepared To Carry Forward The Work Of Aaron Swartz
from the keep-it-up dept
One of the key points we’ve tried to raise over and over again in the wake of Aaron Swartz’s death is that it’s important for people to carry on his work. We’ve seen it in a few places already — such as with academics freeing up their own work — but there’s much more to be done. That’s why it’s interesting to see plans around the globe for hackathons in Swartz’s memory. Who knows what will come out of those hackathons, but seeing more people working on technical solutions for better sharing information and knowledge seems like it can only be a good thing.
