The Rodney Dangerfield nation

"I don't get no respect" ...that was the catchphrase of comedian Rodney Dangerfield. And it might as well be the slogan of the new nation of South Sudan. 48 days after independence... and it's still not on Google Maps. These things take time, you might think. Not really. When rebel forces took control of Tripoli this week, Google changed names on its Libya map within hours. Yes, hours. But South Sudan is still waiting.  There's an excellent article about all this at Mashable. Maybe South Sudan should just change it's name to South Dangerfield. At least then it would get some attention.
