We had an empowering event on the evening of January 11th – which was “10 Years After” Aaron’s suicide.
Timid Robot, from Creative Commons, was our special guest, and about 30 attendees came to our in person event at the Internet Archive.
Aaron was a co-founder of Creative Commons and worked with co-founder Lisa Rein to create the XHTML code for its licenses.
We had this event because many people approached us to say that they had been thinking about this sad anniversary, and its significance, and expressed a desire to be together in person on that day.
Moving forward, we are hoping to channel our sadness into some great direct action, in Aaron’s honor, over this next year .
We invite you to join us, as we remember Aaron and kick off a busy year of Aaron-inspired “10 Years After” projects.
For many of these projects, you will be able to participate remotely from anywhere in the world.
The first “10 Years After” project is helping Creative Commons test out some new tools:
