Estos niveles son prácticos y bien pensados.

Es bueno tener en cuenta que la curva de aprendizaje de Scala es suave pero bastante larga.  A mi me gusta así, porque siempre voy aprendiendo cosas nuevas.  Otros pueden opinar distinto.

Sería bueno armar unos cuantos hangouts con los miembros de esta comunidad para conocernos y planear alguna que otra discusión sobre temas de Scala que seleccionemos. Será por supuesto algo complicado por los horarios disponibles, pero seguramente algo sale.

Aaron Swartz, authored RSS, developer of reddit, fighter for internet freedom, battled against SOPA, aged 26, dead !

Tributes to Aaron most welcomed in the comments !

Aaron's death is not simply a personal tragedy. It is the product of a criminal justice system rife with intimidation and prosecutorial overreach

So says the family of Aaron Swartz in a statement.  Aaron 26 was found dead, he had hanged himself the coroner reports.

His family also said :

He used his prodigious skills as a programmer and technologist not to enrich himself but to make the Internet and the world a fairer, better place.

A victory for the US justice system ?

The US justice system no longer has to worry about the threat posed by Aaron Swartz the 26 year old who co-authored RSS at the age of 14 and was an early developer of Reddit. He was a champion of internet freedom and battled against SOPA.  He was also a fellow at Harvard University's Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics  

The US Justice system was pursuing him with 13 felony accounts threatening him with a fine of 1 million dollars and more than 35 years in prison if convicted.

His crime ?
Downloading academic journal articles with the intent of sharing them online for free with others.

Alex Stamos, CEO of Artemis Internet, is a computer forensics investigator employed by the Swartz legal defense as an expert witness. On January 12, 2012, he posted a summary of the expert testimony he was prepared to present in the JSTOR case, concluding "I know a criminal hack when I see it, and Aaron’s downloading of [academic] journal articles from an unlocked closet is not an offense worth 35 years in jail."

Lawrence Lessig, an attorney and friend of Aaron's, called his prosecution an abuse of proportionality and said "the question this government needs to answer is why it was so necessary that Aaron Swartz be labeled a felon.

Reminds me of the Blair Newmann story

=========================================

Sir Tim Berners-Lee - the European inventor of the World Wide Web - commemorated Mr Swartz in a Twitter post: "Aaron dead. World wanderers, we have lost a wise elder. Hackers for right, we are one down. Parents all, we have lost a child. Let us weep."

Today I weep.  This is truly a loss for us all.

What will we do about this ?

+Roger Clark said 
Rest well young brother.  Your ascension will not go unnoticed nor your legacy forgotten.  Thank you, brave and noble soul.
