Happy birthday to fellow geek, blogger, Scorpio and all-round deep-thinking guy Aaron Swartz! Hey, Aaron, if I had any money to spare, I’d buy you something from your Amazon Wish List. Maybe someone out there with two coins to rub together will.

A quick blurb from the birthday entry in his weblog:

In the US, we have a tradition that when you blow out the candles on your birthday cake, you should make a wish. Every year, as far back as I can remember, I’ve wished that I would see another birthday. It’s not that I’m afraid of dying, I just liked living.

Well said.

If they ever form a superhero team called “Aqua Teen Hacker Force”, my money’s on Aaron for its leader.
