Like just about everybody, I’m a big Wikipedia fan. (Indeed, Code v2 is dedicated to the project.) And so I was extremely happy to read that Aaron Swartz is running for the board. Aaron was one of the early architects of CC. But his talent is much more than technical. He is a brilliantly independent and clear thinker; takes bullshit from no one; and has a deep and reflective view about all things Net. I’m sure this is true of more than one person, but he would make an outstanding addition to the board.
