In the wake of Aaron Swartz’s suicide, your friendly neighbourhood cyber-vigilantes Anonymous have been lashing out. It’s mostly been DDOSes and cyber-vandalism, but its most recent project is a bit more fun and lets you play Asteroids with a Nyan Cat spaceship that blasts up sites.

Outpourings of grief and calls for change continue to flood the Internet after the suicide of Aaron Swartz, only 26 years old.
