Bradley Manning: A Nobel Peace Prize Nomination?

Bradley Manning, the American charged with the biggest leak of classified information in U.S. history, is in the running for the Nobel Peace Prize this year: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/02/27/nobel-peace-prize-2012-nominees_n_1303614.html It's worth pointing out this major WikiLeaks' cog could could face the death penalty. 

It'll be interesting to see how far the Nobel committee takes this one. It sounds like great news, even with Chinese government asking: "How do you like your Nobel Peace Prize now?"

Be patient. You can get the answer 50 years later.

"Every year, the Norwegian Nobel Committee sends out thousands of letters inviting qualified people to submit their nominations for the Nobel Peace Prize. The names of the nominees and other information about the nominations cannot be revealed until 50 years later."

How about expose certain behaviors of people in government? With impunity, they are less likely to behave themselves.

I completely agree with distance education is at a place on the S-shaped curve that will see exponential growth in the area. I can see this in my organization. Today we offer 12 blended e-learning courses. Three years ago my organization offered zero e-learning courses.
