Carnival of Homeschooling

Alasandra’s Homeschool Blog is hosting this week’s Carnival of Homeschooling.

In Lost Promise, Corn and Oil remembers computer prodigy Aaron Swartz, who was homeschooled as a boy.  In his teens, he helped develop RSS, then co-founded Reddit. A crusader for Internet freedom, Swartz was threatened with 35 years in prison for publishing scientific papers without authorization. He committed suicide at 26.

  1. Thank you for the acknowledgement regarding Aaron Swartz. Having a 26 year old son myself, this horrible situation makes me incredibly sad.
    I hope some good comes of this terrible loss. I think his friends and supporters are determined to make that happen.

  2. Aaron did not commit suicide. He was killed by the government.
