Question
Dear Expert

http://www.nobelprize.org/‎

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

etc

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Answer
Adding a new category will be extremely difficult, simply because Nobel Prizes are awarded based on what Alfred Nobel specified in his will -- and it from his money that these awards are given out. In the more than 100 years since his foundation began awarding prizes based on Nobel's instructions, only one category has been added.

Expertise

I can help with understanding physics that does not involve eggs. I will NOT help with academic or professional questions, which are NOT limited only to homework. Please do not waste your time by asking a question that comes out of ANY kind of academic, professional, or business matters.

Experience

Have been fascinated by physical laws ever since I learned, at age seven, that magnets work under water. My study continued through college and has not ceased even after I retired.
