Update on Aaron Swartz document release

Kevin Poulson of Wired hasĀ published an update on the Aaron Swartz document release.

Evidently the government found more documents and wanted time to review before releasing. The Judge said, “No way”, and that the government has to start releasing documents already reviewed, and provide a timetable when the rest will be released.

Poulson has stated when he starts to receive the documents, he’ll post them. I hope he does. Too many journalists have a habit of _not_ publishing documents they receive as part of a FOIA request or other action, preferring to dribble out the data in tiny bits to keep people coming back.
