Excellent long form on Aaron Swartz
Around that time, Swartz ceased his [JSTOR] downloading for about a month, most likely because he had traveled to Washington, D.C., with Wikler to volunteer with the DNC in the lead-up to the 2010 midterm elections. When he returned to Cambridge in November, he got back to downloading. This time, he decided to pre-empt any wireless IP bans by hard-wiring his Acer laptop directly into MIT’s network.
The DNC.... He was very young, wasn't he?
NOTE The other interesting information is his long study of David Foster Wallace's Infinite Jest... Which ends with the unravelling of its protagonist. Wallace, of course, committed suicide.
