Aaron Swartz Remembered With Annual Hackathon In San Francisco ( 18

"This weekend you have the chance to add to Aaron Swartz's legacy by boosting tools for whistleblowers," the EFF writes. An anonymous reader quotes their report. The 2016 Aaron Swartz International Hackathon -- held in honor of the late Internet and political activist -- will take place during the day Saturday and Sunday at the Internet Archive in San Francisco. The hackathon will focus on whistleblower submission system SecureDrop, which was created by Swartz and Kevin Poulsen to connect media organizations and anonymous sources and is managed by the Freedom of the Press Foundation. This weekend's events -- timed to what would have been his 30th birthday on Nov. 8 -- will also feature a series of speakers on Saturday night, including SecureDrop's Conor Schaefer, Fight for the Future Co-founder Tiffiniy Cheng, and EFF Executive Director Cindy Cohn, as well as a special statement from Chelsea Manning.
