Ahhh New York at midnight

Glanced at my email subject lines during breakfast with the kids, and broke into tears over the news about Aaron Swartz.    I didn't know him well, but I liked and admired him.  When he was hanging out at W3C as a teen, I used to joke that he'd succeed TimBL as W3C director, some day. 

The last time we hung out was years ago, when we went to a sneak preview of Joss Whedon's Serenity at a theater in Boston.   Maybe that's symbolic; brief, awesome lives, trying desparately -- and with some success -- to make the world a better place.       Also, mental illness?    

Of course, I don't know what was really going on for Aaron, but for now the lesson I'm going to take is trying for less dramatic action and more actual serenity.
