Aaron Swartz (Reddit, RSS) dies; JSTOR provides limited free access to archives
Interesting news if you've not been following these stories:
"The archives of more than 1,200 journals are now available for limited free reading by the public, JSTOR announced today. Anyone can sign up for a JSTOR account and read up to three articles for free every two weeks."
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.
