The Internet has a slight chance of winning this year's Nobel Peace Prize, as it is among a record 237 individuals and organisations nominated for the prize. It is unclear who would accept the prize of the Internet were to win. More info at BBC News.
The nomination for the internet is supported by 2003 Nobel Peace Prize winner Shirin Ebadi and the founder of the $100 laptop project Nicholas Negroponte.
Nominations can be put forward by former laureates, members of national governments and select university professors, among others.
Others on the shortlist are thought to include Russian human rights activist Svetlana Gannushkina and Chinese activist Liu Xiaobo.
