LXer: Reddit co-founder's death ignites journal access debate

Published at LXer:

The suicide of American online activist Aaron Swartz has ignited a debate about the cost of academic journals and access to information. Swartz, 26, known for his work on RSS and co-founding social news website Reddit, took his life over the weekend. He was facing charges for allegedly downloading millions of academic journal articles from the subscription-only academic database JSTOR, using a laptop hidden in the basement of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. A protest over his prosecution was held on Sunday afternoon (local time) at MIT in Massachusetts.
