Internet to Join the Ranks of Barack Obama, Nelson Mandela, Elie Wiesel and Jimmy Carter?

February 7, 2010 at 4:40 pm Leave a comment

I just read a very interesting article on Mashable that indicated that the Internet had been nominated for the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize this year.  It, (the Internet), faces competition from the Chinese “dissident” as well as a Russian human rights activist.

The Internet received its nomination after the Italian version of Wired Magazine argued that the Internet’s contributions were “dialogue, debate and consensus through communication”

While I myself am sure that the Internet will probably not prevail as this year’s winner, I think that it is highly significant for it to have been nominated.

However, as the Associated Press reminds us, last year’s choice of President Barack Obama after only a year in office created much tension and controversy, so this year’s choice will probably be a safer one.  Sorry Internet.
