(Some will say this is not the time. I disagree. This is the time when every mixed emotion needs to find voice.)
Since his arresting the early morning of January 11, 2011 — two years to the day before Aaron Swartz ended his life — I have known more about the events that began this…

So, this is a thing that happened.
At my startup, awe.sm, we use another startup called ZeroCater to cater lunch for everybody 3 days a week. Part of ZeroCater’s service is that they send you an email every day asking you to rate your lunch. They use your votes to decide whether to send you that meal again in future. Yesterday, in the middle of election fever, ZeroCater had a little downtime. So I sent them this mock-aggrieved tweet:
@zerocater My lunch is the only thing I’m allowed to vote on, but you’re down! WHY MUST YOU DISENFRANCHISE ME FURTHER?!111— Laurie Voss (@seldo) November 7, 2012
The reason I did so is because ZeroCater are known for being great on Twitter — our account manager, Yoshi, often sends us hilarious replies. But this time they didn’t. Not until today, when a messenger brought us six delicious cupcakes and a card, apparently signed by most of ZeroCater, all apologizing in different ways for disenfranchising me.
ZeroCater win at everything.
