This guy was an enormous force for good in the world, like Aaron Swartz.
People who think one person doesn't matter turn out to be wrong when these sorts of men vanish. It usually becomes obvious that they were one in a million and were having a profound effect on the general zeitgeist just by hanging around. I am convinced this is why they "suicided" Swartz.
This guy was constantly pushing the idea of open source behind the scenes until it became something standard in most good developer's minds. The MIT license is really the only one that matters and that is why Vault-OS will be released under it.
UPDATE: As more comes out, this looks like the police ruined this man's life in a single night for knocking on his neighbor's door to ask him to keep the noise down. This links to an archive that has been mysteriously deleted on the live page. It's all very, very suspicious stuff like the death of Swartz. The "police" in the "United States" sound more and more like the "police" in Mexico every single day.
