Why did Aaron Swartz release Jottit ?

Many people would come to see him with the following question : How do I create a website ?

However, it was impossible for Aaron to give an easy solution.

There were mainly two solutions : learn HTML for instance, which was difficult and not affordable for everyone or create a blog, but that is a specific community, not everyone want to go in.

Consequently, Aaron Swartz decided to create Jottit.
