New Re: Aaron Swartz has died at 26.
His (Boing Boing) ~22 min video-report on the 'IMPOSSIBLE!" dismantling of the SOAP atrocity, here:

demonstrates [almost 'live'] enough about the speaker, his POV and manifest communication skills--even on a first acquaintance
--to gauge what a fine mind we all have lost.
The other encomia underscore how multiple were his talents, while it is clear that DoJ still hires modern-day Javerts: to "drop the atom bomb on Luxembourg".

Throw in Lessig's characterization of a livid Senator, salivating at the prospect of ~~ nailing those web-brats who make fun of the incompetence and impotence of Himself and cohorts:
Maybe the best that the still-living can build from this loss and (merely latest example of) the National incompetence and incoherence:
is that vigilance next shall be even larger than that which killed that bill, because we Know that Reactionary forces have never been larger or more determined.

If he needs to be made a Martyr? Fair enough, if that icon will keep people Off Their Asses when Congress tries to reword and pass: Version Two.

Meanwhile ... may that Prosecutor become as universally despised as is His Javert 'icon' already, for every good reason.
New A call to remove Javert from him position

Also, this is apparently not this particular Javert's first foray into causing young hackers to commit suicide: http://www.buzzfeed....nked-to-another-h
