In memoriam Aaron Swartz (1986-2013). I, like so many others, knew Aaron as a 14 year old boy working in the RDF Interest group and participating in Semantic Web events, like SWWS, which I chaired and co-organised. I remember exactly the day when we had a meeting at MIT, the door opened and a 14 year old boy stood in the door. Imagine our reaction when we realised we all knew him from the interactions on the RDF Interest mailing list! Aaron, you touched many lives and have shown us what we can achieve with dedication and passion. You died not in vain. RIP.
