As a side note:
For those of you who followed the Aaaron Swartz (Reddit, RSS) / JSTOR story (he accessed and downloaded about 5 million articles - nearly the entire JSTOR library), the NY Times article posted after his death a couple of weeks ago has quite a bit of good background info related to the story as well as his impact on the web at large.
