|I see more news about him than about Steve Jobs when he died. What made Aaron special? I never heard about him before today. Sure, co-authoring RSS is something to be proud of, and so is co-founding Reddit. But anyone with a brain could have developed a technical specification and a website that turns out to be good.. right?|
I'm probably missing something, so tell me please.
