In wake of Aaron Swartz’s death, Wikipedia launches free, open source academic journal

In the wake of the Sandyhook school shooting, people have finally decided to make the move against mass-shooting machines in the hands of mental patients who are now on watch lists for telling their shrink they once thought of suicide.

Aaron Swartz is the computer prodigy who downloaded the entire contents of JSTOR, a monopolistic academic journal publisher.

Someone walked into a school and blasted a roomful of curious children trying to read cutting-edge academic journals without spending a fortune. They just wanted to learn, but the financial barriers were FATAL.

Don’t wait until your outrage dies down! The wikipedia platform is perfectly suited for publishing academic journals online and has a superior footnoting device–HYPERLINKS! There are better, cheaper, systems than JSTOR that will make your job easier! Now go use them, dammit!
