Excerpts from Aaron Swartz interview, July 10, 2012

via Blog Interview

"Aaron was one of the early architects of Creative Commons. As a teenager, he helped design the code layer to our licenses, and helped build the movement that has carried us so far. Before Creative Commons, he had coauthored RSS. After Creative Commons, he co-founded Reddit, liberated tons of government data, helped build a free public library at, and has done incredibly important work to reform and make good our political system. (, his most recent org, was instrumental in blocking the SOPA/PIPA legislation one year ago.)"
