I almost missed this. The Guardian reports that two Norwegian politicians have nominated Edward Snowden for the Nobel Peace Prize.

The Socialist Left party politicians Baard Vegar Solhjell, a former environment minister, and Snorre Valen said the public debate and policy changes in the wake of Snowden's whistleblowing had "contributed to a more stable and peaceful world order".

I would argue that we haven't seen enough change, based on what Snowden has leaked. But, it did open our eyes into the dark recesses of the NSA and our (the US) spying policies. I hope his nomination is given serious thought.

I know Putin was nominated last year, was he nominated again this year? (Just hadn't seen anything about him being nominated this year).

Anyone can be nominated, and there aren't always public announcements about nominations.
