Aaron Swartz 1986-2013 Today, we lost a great mind to suicide,...

Sadly, a young man who was a major Internet figure committed suicide yesterday. I found this terrific quote from him. Words to live by. 

"Assume nobody else has any idea what they're doing either. A lot of people refuse to try something because they feel they don't know enough about it or they assume other people must have already tried everything they could have thought of. Well, few people really have any idea how to do things right and even fewer are to try new things, so usually if you give your best shot at something you'll do pretty well."
