'The Internet' nominated for Nobel Peace Prize

Posted: 06:17 PM ET

If the Internet wins the Nobel Peace Prize, do we all get a trophy?

Several nominees for the prestigious 2010 prize, which was awarded last year to President Obama, surfaced on Wednesday in news reports. Among them: "The Internet" and, separately, several of the Web's creators, including Larry Roberts, Vint Cerf and Tim Berners-Lee, who is pictured above.

If one of those guys wins, it's pretty clear who would receive the award.

But if the Internet wins? No one seems to know what would happen then. Maybe give it to Al Gore?

The Internet's credentials aren't bad. Recently, it helped speed relief efforts to Haiti and organized protesters in Iran. Wired Magazine in Italy, which has been advocating for the nomination, says it spreads "dialogue, debate and consensus."

That and, as Chatroulette showed us, porn.

The truth is that the Internet is designed as a fairly neutral platform - and it's used both for good and ill. That's perhaps why the nomination has sparked so much debate - ahem - on the Internet.

Some Web sites, including the tech blog Mashable, have asked whether Wired Magazine in Italy is raising the issue to try to get publicity. One commenter on that blog wrote: "This is a really dumb idea for a bunch of smart people ... I think it is just a publicity stunt on Wired's part."

Others say it's silly to give the Nobel Peace Prize to a thing instead of a person.

The who-will-accept-this-award thread is becoming a running joke online:

"If the Internet wins the Nobel Peace Prize, I really hope a cat accepts the award," Twitter user @joyengel wrote, in an apparent reference to  the goofy LOLcats meme.

The Internet has an unprecedented amount of competition. There were more Nobel Peace Prize nominees - 237– this year than ever before, according to news reports.

Not all of the Peace Prize nominations have been made public. Lots of people, from professors to government officials, can submit nominations for the prize.

The prize winner will be announced in October.

If the Internet wins, who do you think should get the prize? And do you think it would be deserved?

Let's see, stupid "Al Gore" comment asides, who invented the Internet?

That would be the US Department of Defense's Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). Organizations can and have won Nobel Prizes, so why couldn't DARPA?

Except, it would be really weird for the US Department of Defense to win the Peace Prize, wouldn't it?

DARPA as the original and major sponsor of the creation of the Internet, and Tim Berners Lee as the inventor of the World Wide Web (the most popular application on the Internet).

Actually in the US I honestly believe that the Interstate Road system built by Eisenhower is the more important of the 3 things CNN has up to vote on. Worldwide yes the Internet is high up there on achievements of the last Century.

The Interstate Road system in the US actually opened this country up to a whole slew of progressive occurances. Food stuffs became cheaper, Travel became faster the list is long. Also on that list is the death of small waystations along the small highways and the drying up of small towns that were nowhere near the interstate. BUT that was the same thing that happend when the railroads finally connected from East to West.

The internet as an Information Highway has pretty much caused the collapse of the Newspapers, being able to write coherent letters to one another also suffered at the hands, datastreams, of the internet. With the internet came the idea that news was supposed to entertain instead of inform and in the quest for being entertainment actual News went the way of the Dodo.

In my estimation the giving of the Noble Prize to something like the internet makes no more sense than giving it to a coffee pot or a toaster.

Tim Berners-Lee, Larry Roberts and Vint Cerf they deserve it.

I think all of the call center tech support agents in the US should get it because we spawned the business and then the companies we worked for outsourced it to other countries bring prosperity to other lands. And lack of jobs to us. OOh and I like the idea of LOL cat accepting the award, or David Elsewhere... whichever.


Mo Gangstar   March 15th, 2010 2:06 pm ET

Does anyone actually care about the Nobel Peace Prize any more? Since being awarded to Al Gore and Barack Obama, it has seriously lost all credibility from many perspectives and no longer is perceived as an unbiased award!

misconceptions I have read on this recently.


H. B.   March 17th, 2010 11:23 pm ET

I can remember, circa 1990, when it hadn't yet even been named. People were calling it "the Information Superhighway." Even those who made it happen couldn't have imagined, in their wildest dreams, what it would become, in less than two decades.

But users don't merit the award, because they did NOT create the Web. They only made it come into general usage with incredible speed.

Those who first conceived of it expected it to be a sholastic tool, but in conceiving of it, they opened the door to others, who then expanded its usage potential to the rest of the world.

BOTH people, originators and expanders, should share the reward. And since both are groups of people, rather than one individual for each, they should ALL share that prize. One created the engine, while the other made it hum. To have the Internet of today required BOTH.

In a way, giving the award to an inanimate thing is ludicrous. But it is also unfair, since it denies credit to the very people who made the Internet HAPPEN. It is only through THEIR insights, innovation and hard work that we have this thing which has contributed in so many ways to a better world, in spite of its warts.

We shouldn't ignore the people who gave us the Internet. It didn't create itself. But the prize is definitely merited for them.

The vast majority of people here have NO IDEA of the history of the Internet. The Internet actually passed it's first message back in 1969, just after the Apollo 11 moon landing.

Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web (WWW), which is one service that runs on the Internet. E-mail is another service, as are such arcane but vital services like SNMP, DNS, FTP, etc. How important are these services? Without FTP, there would be no Netflix, as just one example.

Think of it this way-the Internet is a system of roads, and over the roads pass vehicles-cars, busses, trucks, etc. Each vehicle type represents a different service that all share the road, just like multiple services share the internet.

If the Nobel is going to be awarded to the inventors of the Internet, it should go to Vint Cerf, Bob Kahn, and Leonard Kleinrock, the three guys who did the most to shape the Internet as we know it. Cerf and Kahn invented TCP and IP, the fundamental protocols that carry virtually ALL internet traffic, while Kleinrock invented (essentially) Packet Switching, which is the method used to pass all Internet packets around.

Larry Roberts was the brainchild who came up with the idea of an internet, but since Nobel prizes are restricted to three recipients, and he did little of the actual work, the others take precedent in my view.

Without Cerf, Kahn, and Kleinrock, the Web, e-mail, etc. would simply not exist. I fully support the idea of giving the Nobel to those three gentlemen.

Let's just hope the people who award the prize this year are smarter than the ones who picked the 2009 award winner.

DIB Legacy (second post): DIB, you are so wrong.

The Internet is NOT composed of users, it is made up of the millions of routers, switches, computers, network access devices, and miles of wire that allow computers to send messages, chat, move files, etc.

And as to your statement that "I mean you definitely can't give it to a scientist ...", well, why not? Computer scientists are the people who created the internet, which passed it first messages back in 1969, just weeks after the Apollo 11 moon landing. Yes, it's that old.

Personally, I think giving a Nobel to Vint Cerf, Larry Roberts, Bob Kahn, and Leonard Kleinrock is long overdue. They certainly are more worthy than the 2009 recipient.

One big problem is that the Nobel prize rules prohibit more than three people from sharing a Nobel, thus one of the four people most responsible for creating the Internet would get left out, as has happened before (see Nobel Prizes for Penicillin and DNA).

Thus, DIB, before you voice an opinion again, you should become more educated on the subject. As can be seen above, not only don't you know what the Internet is, you know nothing of it's history.

BTW, Tim Berners-Lee, the man who created the World Wide Web, was only 14 when the Internet was created.


Colin in Florida   May 14th, 2012 10:13 am ET

LisaNYC, Carnut, and others: You are confusing the Internet with the World Wide Web.

Let me describe the difference: The Internet is like a large road. It carries cars, vans, trucks, motorcycles, and many other types of vehicles.

The services that use the Internet, like HTTP, SMTP, FTP, etc. are the different types of vehicles that drive on the road.

The Web (HTTP) is just one type of vehicle that runs on the web. E-mail (SMTP) also runs on the web, as does FTP (File Transfer Protocol) that moves files, photos, etc. around on the Internet, and other such services as SNMP, TFTP, IMAP, DHCP, and many others that users never deal with directly, but are all required to make the Internet work.
