+ - MIT: Keep Your Swartz Questions to Yourselves 2

theodp (442580) writes "The good news is that MIT plans to release a report in a few weeks on its involvement in the events leading up to Aaron Swartz's suicide. The bad news is that the university won't be accepting any questions or comments on the matter from anyone outside of MIT. 'There have been dozens of questions about these events in the press and on the Net over the past week,' acknowledged MIT's Hal Abelson. 'But the most important questions are the ones that will come from the MIT community, because we are the ones who will be held to account.' Having charged Abelson with the review, which Abelson said he expects will show 'that every person acted in accordance with MIT policy', MIT President Rafael Reif was apparently off to Switzerland, where he's slated to appear on a Davos panel with Bill Gates, who coincidentally once snuck into buildings on the Univ. of Washington campus to grab some free computer time. Reif and his fellow 'RevolutiOnline.edu — Online Education Changing the World' panelists will be discussing strategies 'to give millions of people access to high level education and the chance to a better life.' Hey, didn't Aaron Swartz have some ideas on that?"
