I recently signed up to LinkedIn and I love it. Great for finding jobs and getting to know people who are worth knowing.
 
Are you one of them? LinkedIn now has more than 200 million users in more than 200 countries http://bit.ly/WtmZOI

I didn't really get into it because of uni and stuff but I think I need to give this another try.

Amazing.
Search starts with the web. It's made up of over 30 trillion individual pages and it's constantly growing. Google navigates the web by crawling. That means we follow links from page to page. Site owne...

What a week it has been! Finally started my second semester at University. Fun, fun, fun! Joined the gym and managed to almost finish my secret website project. Phew! Also, #TGIF! Time to relax a little.

Word.
 
I haven't bothered to mention the whole sad Aaron Swartz saga, because it's been covered elsewhere. 

But having the involved US attorney then basically lie about it all in a very public statement is something that I find particularly offensive. Compare these two statements - one from July 2011, one from yesterday, and tell me Carmen Ortiz isn't lying..

Yesterday (as reported by the Wall Street Journal and elsewhere):

 "At no time did this office ever seek – or ever tell Mr. Swartz’s attorneys that it intended to seek – maximum penalties under the law."

And July 2011 (as posted by justice.gov itself):

 "SWARTZ faces up to 35 years in prison, to be followed by three years of supervised release, restitution, forfeiture and a fine of up to $1 million"

Maybe that official and very public PR thing wasn't "telling Mr. Swartz’s attorneys", right?  Because in private, Ms Ortiz was probably talking about how she wanted to pay Aaron for his services, and just hug him. Right?  Anybody?

Ms Ortiz, just admit you were an ass-hat, and apologize. Instead of this kind of crap. Weasel-wording and misleading about your actions is not making your office look any better.

Here are the sources, so that people can compare them for themselves.
