Aaron Swartz (November 8, 1986 - January 11, 2013) was a hero among hackers.
Darren steps away from the usual Hak5 episode to take some time to remember a true hero amongst hackers, Aaron Swartz. A founder of Reddit and more importantly, a champion for internet rights, Swartz tragically took his own life on January 11, 2013. We take some time to reflect on his life and honor his memory.
Put together by a band of IT ninjas, security professionals and hardcore gamers, Hak5 isn't your typical tech show. We take on hacking in the old-school sense, covering everything from network security, open source and forensics, to DIY modding and the homebrew scene. Then we wrap it all up with a healthy dose of cocktails and geek comedy. Damn the warranties, it's time to Trust your Technolust.
