Words on maps are often just viewed as the proverbial cherry on top; simple signifiers of something other - but be warned, words have a life of their own!  Be careful they don't take over completely!

The revolution is beginning on the twitter site trendsmap - discussion topics are dynamically and spatially represented in a word cloud format.
(be warned, it can be a bit slow to load though)
Wordle is staging its form of mutiny too - this site lets you create your own word clouds.

(Put in about 10 words then change their layout, font etc. Quite fun!)
