Thanks for everything, Aaron — O’Reilly Media

Almost certainly, he’d have liked this —

Amidst the recriminations  about who and what was responsible for Aaron Swartz’s death  comes a #PDFtribute to Aaron Swartz >>>

Writes Laurel Ruma:

I’ve read many eloquent eulogies from people who knew Aaron Swartz better than I did, but he was also a Foo and contributor to Open Government.

So, we’re doing our part at O’Reilly Media to honor Aaron by posting the Open Government book files for free for anyone to download, read and share.

The files are posted on the O’Reilly Media GitHub account as PDF, Mobi, and EPUB files for now. There is a movement on the Internet (#PDFtribute) to memorialize Aaron by posting research and other material for the world to access, and we’re glad to be able to do this.

You can find the book here: github.com/oreillymedia/open_government

Daniel Lathrop, my co-editor on Open Government, says “I think this is an important way to remember Aaron and everything he has done for the world.”

We at O’Reilly echo Daniel’s sentiment.
