Excerpts:
Tech World Saddened by Death of Internet Activist Aaron Swartz
Aaron Swartz was one of the earliest members of the Reddit team, helped build the first RSS program, and was by all accounts a genius at a very young age. Swartz committed suicide on January 11. He was 26 years old.

Swartz is probably best known for his contributions building the first RSS model when he was only a 14-year-old, and then a few years later for helping build what would become the social networking site Reddit. Swartz also founded the advocacy group Demand Progress. Swartz suffered from some personal problems and had blogged about his depression before, which you can find on his personal blog if you're so inclined to go looking.
