    Reddit co-founder commits suicide

    [FONT=arial !important]Aaron Swartz, seen at right during during a Washington, D.C, conference in May, killed himself in this Sullivan Place building (left) yesterday.[/FONT]
    The Internet genius behind the popular Web site Reddit.com committed suicide at his Crown Heights home yesterday, according to law-enforcement sources and his friends who publicly identified him.
    Officers found Aaron Swartz unconscious at 9:30 a.m. Police are investigating whether he passed away after hanging himself, but the medical examiner will determine the cause of death, said law-enforcement sources.

    Swartz is credited with co-founding Reddit and helped draft an early version of the RSS format, a “Web feed†that syndicates popular headlines.
    Friends say he was a prolific intellectual and a kid at heart, who had long suffered from depression.
    “We have lost someone today who had more work to do — and who made the world a better place,†his pal Cory Doctorow wrote on the blog Biong Boing.
    Swartz was arrested in 2011 for allegedly downloading academic journals with the intent to distribute them. He pleaded not guilty in September.
    He also founded the policy-centric Web site DemandProgress.com and was an avid activist.

    Most likely JD will die of auto-erotic asphyxiation....accidental,not suicide

    What a shame he committed suicide. If he would've been murdered by shwartses, it would've made a great thread here.

    Nope there is a nsfw section. I'm pretty sure reddit is more popular than tumblr

    Swartz = Jew.
    And almost all jews are mentally ill because if in-breading. Its not healthy just having babies within the tribe for 5000 years.
    Thats why so many jews are psychotic and lover power/gold more then anything in life.

    Swartz faced that he would loose some of his gold = he killed him self not to loose any gold.

    (Just like Howard. His testament is that everything goes into a trust fund so that he can keep the money in the afterlife.)

    as a jew i must agree with what you say about inbreeding which is why most jews have branched out and married non-jews. jews will be gone in a few generations which is a good thing and a bad thing. good because anti-semitism will be over, bad for people like davida duke and her ilk who will have no one left to blame for everything bad that has happened on earth.

    as far as this young man is concerned, i don't celebrate the death of someone who was probably very brilliant and very young. he could have been rehabbed and become a productive member of society.

    I like reddit. Its hilarious. And there is a NSFW section that is vast and limitless that no other website even comes close to. All free.

    And ya.. Swartz killed himself over the lawsuit the government filed against him. 1 million dollar fine and 35 years he was facing for making FREE documents available that were on a free service called JSTOR. They were trying to make an example of him.. But the documents were fucking FREE to begin with!!! So it was just another example of "the man" oppressing us.. The users.

    And this whole Jew thing is fucking so retarded. There are 13 million Jews on Earth.. Why are so many morons threatened by 13 million people? I am waaaaaay more worried about the 1.3 billion Muslims who seems to really enjoy living in the fucking 10th century and strapping bombs onto themselves.

    I wonder what the charger were. Was he looking at hard core prison time, or crazy fines?

    Shit, 1 million and 35 years? That's pretty hard-core.
