Triple Canopy – The Resistance of Melancholics by David Auerbach
David Auerbach on the life and death of Aaron Swartz. "For Swartz, computers were the best tool yet invented for raising the volume (in terms of number and amplitude) of voices of dissent against the embedded structures of authority and prejudice. One lesson to take from his death is that melancholic maladjustment is a legitimate and even expected response to our society by a painfully intelligent and ethical human being."
