Anomymous hack MIT website, leave an Aaron Swartz tribute

Anonymous strike again, hack an MIT website, leaving an Aaron Swartz tribute

We tender apologies to the administrators at MIT for this temporary use of their websites. We do not consign blame or responsibility upon MIT for what has happened, but call for all those feel heavy-hearted in their proximity to this awful loss to acknowledge instead the responsibility they have - that we all have - to build and safeguard a future that would make Aaron proud.

 

The link to see it is here, and at the time of writing wasn't loading. I'm sure MIT will have the site updated shortly.
