Aaron Swartz: The Complete Archive Listing

For years, I knew that there was someone meticulously cataloging every online Tom the Dancing Bug comic, starting when it first appeared on Salon.com in 1995, collecting links on a simple page he called "Tom the Dancing Bug:  The Complete Archive Listing."

 

Well, that now-defunct page just happened to come up today in a Google search, but this time the search result attached the page's author's name to the result, and that name leaped out at me:  Aaron Swartz.  

 

This is the young man who was a programmer/hacker/activist prodigy and the subject of the documentary "The Internet's Own Boy."  He committed suicide in 2013, in the midst of a criminal prosecution for systematically downloading academic journal articles.

 

When he died, I recognized the name in articles about him from a few Twitter exchanges we'd had, and the fact that he was a member of the INNER HIVE. I realized who my internet acquaintance was, what he had accomplished, and tragically, how he died.  

 

But until this moment, I had no idea just what a devoted reader of Tom the Dancing Bug he was.

 

I'm saddened all over again.  I wish I had met him.

REVIEW OF "ALIEN INVASION IN MY BACKYARD"

Five-stars

 

Review of ALIEN INVASION IN MY BACKYARD from Ben Langhinrichs, of Big Comfy Chair:

"Written as a comic book/case book, this promises to be an absolutely wonderful series of stories for the elementary crowd if this first installment is any indication. I would strongly recommend this for second through fourth graders.

"Five out of five stars!"

ALT-WEEKLY COMICS EXHIBIT

Spxsi

 

Starting March 4, the Society of Illustrators in NYC (with co-presenter the Small Press Expo) is presenting an exhibit of alternative weekly cartoonists, in which my comics are included.

 

I'm especially looking forward to the March 6 opening reception, when I'll see a bunch of my buddies.

 

Looks like curators Warren Bernard and Bill Kartalopoulos did a fantastic job with this, and I can't wait to see it.

 

For information about the exhibit, click here.
