Aaron Swartz was found dead on Friday. The 26-year-old high school drop out prodigy was discovered by a family member deceased in his New York apartment. "Police believe that the cause of death is suicide, Swartz apparently hung himself." Swartz was responsible for helping develop coding for free web content.
According to reports, the U.S. Attorney's Office attempted to bring charges against Swartz for hacking into files at MIT. Swartz stood to do hard time for the accused crime. A guilty sentence would have locked him away for 30 years. RIP, the Tech world will truly miss Aaron Swartz for his brilliant ideas and his amazing tech abilities--he helped contribute a wealth of web information to the world.
