Electronic Components/Nobel Prize - "Technology Innovation".


Dear Deirdre‎

Nobel Prizes are given in the field of "Physics", "Chemistry", "Physiology/Medicine", "Literature", "Peace" Categories.

Do you feel a New Category can be introduced in "Technology Innovation" ?.

For examples :

Tim Berners Lee - Founder of World Wide Web
Dr Eric Schmidt - Founder of Google


Do you feel the Inventor of the Cell Phone Device should also
get a Nobel Prize in "Technology Innovation" ?.

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

There is a Technology award, though not a Nobel prize. It's the Millennium Technology Prize awarded every two years in Finland. And Tim Lee did win that prize in 2004. Linus Torvalds won it in 2012 - he was the inventor of Linux.

This award is as prestigious for technology as the Nobel prize is for the categories which it offers a prize for.
