As a tribute to Aaron Swartz, O’Reilly is making available for free, to download and share, the book Open Governemnt to which he contributed the chapter “When Is Transparency Useful?” I also have a chapter in that book, “All Your Data Are Belong to Us: Liberating Government Data.”
The files are posted on the O’Reilly Media GitHub account as PDF, Mobi, and EPUB files for now. There is a movement on the Internet (#PDFtribute) to memorialize Aaron by posting research and other material for the world to access, and we’re glad to be able to do this.
You can find the book here: github.com/oreillymedia/open_government
The January 29 episode of the Suprisingly Free podcast will be a remembrance of Aaron with James Grimmelman.
