#2 I dunno.
I personally think Aaron Schwartz died because the Digerati leftists forgot to exempt themselves from the legal system they wanted guys like Al Armendariz to nail everyone else to.

#3 I felt that the article presented a good contrast between a law dodging pseudo-intellectual bien pensant like Morgan who was allowed into the US because he is a "genius" and a real genius like Swartz.
a good case for MIT to atone for their sins here.

It's from some place called "OpEd News" and is called called an "opinion"?

I thought it was quite fine. JSTOR is
the biggest impediment to research after the tenure system itself.

#6 I'm just getting tired of every time the Schwartz case comes up there are all these useful idiot liberals around who are shocked, SHOCKED to find that gambling is going on in this establishment and that government is abusing its power.
They never seem to make the connection between guys like this:
and people like Swartz eventually being on the receiving end.
And yes, there's a point to mentioning Morgan's name wrt this. I don't think the original opinion piece linked here mentioned that Morgan was apparently up to his tonsils in the Big Phone Hacking affair that hit the British media. Hmm, let me double check.

That, and a prosecutor being groomed for 'better things' got the blessing-to-act from both the Digerati and the Massachusetts political establishment.
