The Internet is nominated for Nobel Peace Prize.

Quote:
The Norwegian Nobel Institute yesterday announced there are 237 nominees for the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize. Though the the institute doesn't normally disclose who made the list, an official did confirm to Computerworld that it includes the Internet.

That's right. The Internet was nominated for the illustrious prize by the Italian edition of Wired magazine, according to the institute.

Geir Lundestad, director of the Norwegian Nobel Institute, told Computerworld that while the Nobel Institute does not officially identify who or what was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize, he did acknowledge that the Internet's nomination has become widely known.

Lundestad added that Riccardo Luna, editor-in-chief of the Italian edition of Wired nominated the Internet for the prize.

That's a crock. You can go on the Internet and learn how to make bombs. Terrorist groups can communicate around the world to plan attacks. Doesn't sound like Peace to me.

So if the Internet wins, then Al Gore will accept the award on behalf of the world!
