A Virtual Country (Only)

Some amusing news today about how the Indian Ocean country of the Maldives has opened the first "virtual embassy" on Second Life, beating out Sweden for the honor.

Somewhat less amusing is the fact that the Maldives, eighty percent of which lies under one meter sea level and which is home to 360,000 people, is likely to disappear as a real country in the next hundred years.
