PACER sucks–RECAP to the Rescue

Reading about Aaron Swartz, I came across PACER, which is supposed to stand for “Public Access to Court Electronic Records”.  You would think that this would be a public service provided by the government, right?  Well, sort of.  You have to pay 10 cents per page to access the database (your tax dollars at work to generate more tax dollars – yay!!!).

Aaron, however, was responsible to RECAP, which provides free access to a lot of these files…  I never met Aaron, but looking at his past, was an amazing amazing guy.  Sucks that I won’t have a chance to meet him…
