Aaron Swartz Documents to be Released

The prosecution documents related to Aaron Swartz are to be released after personally identifying information is redacted.

This is a good decision, both in the release of the documents and the removal of personal identification. We need to examine the process, not instigate a witch hunt.

I agreed with Aaron about the need to make documents, such as those in PACER and JSTOR, available to the public. Where I disagreed with him is in the method. Hence this web site.
