American teenage genius blogger Aaron Swartz

Aaron Swartz, a teenage writer, coder, and hacker, appears to be a genius.

One of Aaron's projects is writing. He aims for a weblog post each weekday, and a Google Weblog update when needed. He's also doing some Google writing on contract, and is planning go to school at Stanford in September. Here's how he thinks:

"... I think deeply about things and want others to do likewise. I work for ideas and learn from people. I don't like excluding people. I'm a perfectionist, but I won't let that get in the way of publication. Except for education and entertainment, I'm not going to waste my time on things that won't have an impact. I try to be friends with everyone, but I hate it when you don't take me seriously. I don't hold grudges (it's not productive) but I learn from my experience. I want to make the world a better place ..."

Aaron, on the political compass test, as of 2003-08-23, is lower-left:

Economic Left/Right: -5.50
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -7.69

Imagine what's ahead for such a young hard working chap with a fine and brilliant mind. The world is his oyster. Best of luck Aaron. Make the world a better place.
