The majority of Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) websites became inaccessible in memory of RSS and Reddit cofounder Aaron Swartz on Sunday evening. Anonymous hacked MIT to leave a message honouring the 26-year-old Internet freedom activist who hanged himself on Friday.
Swartz was found dead in his Brooklyn apartment after struggling for years against a legal system that he felt had not caught up to the information age.
