Wow, it’s already Nobel season! ChemBark and the Curious Wavefunction already have predictions. My 2010 Nobel predictions are here (and, of course, the Simpsons had their own last year). I don’t have too much to add to my 2010 predictions; instead, I’m going to put my chips all in and give just one prediction for each category.
Physics: Moerner, for single-molecule spectroscopy
Chemistry: Matyjaszewski, for polymer synthesis
Medicine: Djerassi, for The Pill
Peace: Twitter, for liberating Egypt
Literature: Twitter, for making literature shorter
