Who has your back?

EFF has just released the 2013 edition of Who Has Your Back?

Users shouldn’t be left in the dark. They have a right to know when the government is seeking their data and deserve a chance to stand up for themselves. But they can’t do it unless companies are willing to make a commitment take a stand with them. As stewards of our digital lives, companies need to promise to be transparent and help users fight for stronger, clearer protections and standards in the law.

RIP Aaron Swartz

AaronSwartzPIPA

He is one of the most inspirational people “to me, at least”, I’m not exaggerating if i said he’s been a superhero of mine since I knew him in early 2012 when the whole SOPA thing came up, He started  http://demandprogress.org, I contacted him, asking how to support the campaign from Egypt.

Aaron has committed suicide yesterday after falling into depression for waiting a 35 years jail sentence for believing knowledge should be free and available for everybody.

I’m not a good writer so I’m referring you to @ggreenwald’s article at the Guardian to know more about him and what he did to the Internet community.

The inspiring heroism of Aaron Swartz
