Ten years ago, #AaronSwartz died by suicide following a prolonged and relentless crusade by the U.S. judiciary to prosecute him for allegedly downloading academic articles.
After his death, @freedomofpress took over maintenance of the open source whistleblower submission platform he had been developing, now called SecureDrop, hoping to get news orgs to adopt it. It's now used by dozens of news outlets worldwide.
Thank you, Aaron. ❤️ We are honored to carry on your legacy.
