This web site is part of MIT’s review of the events preceding Aaron Swartz’s suicide on January 11, 2013. There have been dozens of questions about these events in the press and on the Net over the past week. But the most important questions are the ones that will come from the MIT community, because we are the ones who will be held to account. IS&T has created this web site so you can suggest questions and issues to guide the review and comment on the questions of others. Please remember that this is about the first phase of the review only – questions about what happened and why. A second phase, where we all deliberate over implications, will follow.
Questions will appear with your name and, this entire site is publicly view-able but only members of the MIT community may contribute. Your questions will be attributed.
We thank you for the high quality input. Question submission and commenting is now closed as the report is prepared.
