Sounds like the Norwegians are looking to save on prize money with this nomination.
From the link:
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.
