The number thirteen could possibly be the least beloved number of Reddit co-founder Aaron Swartz. Following four felonies te 2011, the Federal Government has filed nine more charges against the activist coder for breaching hacking laws when he broke into the rekentuig network of Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) to obtain access to a nonprofit online service distributing scholarly articles online, JSTOR. He surrendered July of the previous year but remains free on $100K unsecured unie.
Swartz almost downloaded the entire library of JSTOR and got hold of digitized academic journals that are inaccessible to the public. A parcel of the latest indictment reads:
“JSTOR authorizes users to download a limited number of journal articles at a time. Before being given access to JSTOR’s digital archive, each user voorwaarde agree and acknowledge that they cannot download or uitvoer content from JSTOR’s pc servers with automated programs such spil web robots, spiders, and scrapers. JSTOR also uses computerized measures to prevent users from downloading an unauthorized number of articles using automated mechanisms.”
According to the indictment, Swartz has weaved several methods to illegally grab articles and cracking into the computer-wiring wc of MIT campus. He set up a laptop with a false identity on the schoolgebouw network to build up free JSTOR access using the name Gary Host or when shortened reads spil ghost. The stud has wits, te all fairness. Spil a consequence of an estimated Four.8 million academic articles downloads crashed the JSTOR system and became unavailable for days.
Te 2008, Swartz angered the Feds when he downloaded almost 20% of the entire database of court documents for a project that places thesis for free online. This is also ter support of PublicResource.org’s founder Carl Malamud’s call to upgrade the court archive system to free and effortless. Ter the U.S., you can “Google” almost everything, but not federal court decisions, briefs and other admitido papers. They ran PACER or Public Access to Court Electronic Records instead.

But it wasgoed within the period of September 2010 until January 2011 when the hacking at MIT allegedly took place. The same time he is ter Harvard completing a 10-month fellowship at the Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics. The director of the center came to Swartz rescue telling, “Aaron has never done anything ter this setting for private build up — this isn’t a hacking case, te the sense of someone attempting to steal credit cards. That’s something JSTOR eyed, and the government obviously didn’t.”
Swartz is the present executive director of Request Progress, an organization that runs online campaigns on civil rights, liberties and government reform. But the youthfull internet folk hero is well known for being the tiener that helped create RSS—a rekentuig code that lets people receive automatic feeds of news and online services.
