Internet hacktivists hold global ‘hackathon’ in honor of Aaron Swartz’s birthday
“FACT: Aaron did not hack into any of MIT’s computers. The CFAA requires that a person gain access to a computer that they weren’t authorized to access. Aaron was obviously authorized to access his own laptop,” it notes, adding that Aaron wasn’t even violating JSTOR’s Terms of Service at the time. "JSTOR and MIT had contractual agreements allowing unlimited downloads to any computers on MITs network."
Online hacktivists are holding a “hackathon” spanning two days to honor the would-have-been birthday of dead computer programmer and hacktivist Aaron Swartz.
The hackathon will be a global phenomenon, spanning 11 cities including Berlin, Boston, New York, Buenos Aires and Oxford, according to its affiliated website. However, its main location will be in San Francisco where programmers, developers, artists, researchers, and activists gather together, according to the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
