If you’re new to the idea of open access and public access, brought by the sad energy of Aaron Swartz’s suicide, I urge you to try to be inspired by him and learn about the space. He was a voracious reader, an insatiable scholar.

Follow his example. Do your research, read the overviews, follow the links. Learn is the first part of his four-part method. This is a well developed field, and though we need your energy, we need it very much in a learned and focused manner.

There is already legislation. There are already organizations, advocates, resources. Get involved.

Learn. Then Try. Then Gab. Then Build.

But always, always, start by learning.
