Should the Nobel Peace Prize Go to the Internet?

Riccardo Luna, the editor in chief of the Italian edition of Wired, thinks so, saying:

The Internet can be considered the first weapon of mass construction, which we can deploy to destroy hate and conflict and to propagate peace and democracy. What happened in Iran after the latest election, and the role the Web played in spreading information that would otherwise have been censored, are only the newest examples of how the Internet can become a weapon of global hope.

If you agree, you can sign an online petition nominating the Internet for the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize.
