"The Sopranos" Map: http://www.nytimes.com/2006/02/20/technology/20google.html?_r=1&oref=slogin created an interactive map of New Jersey, using satellite maps from Google, and have highlighted important points of the most recent season's storyline. The map has about 15 icons in specific areas where scenes took place. When the user clicks on an icon, the scene plays in a pop-up window, which also supplies a description and a list of characters.

By 2010, the click-to-call ad market could be worth substantial money to the search advertising industry : http://www.webpronews.com/topnews/topnews/wpn-60-20060221ClickToCallMayRingUp37Billion.html (Little phone icons next to advertisements offer users a chance to click-to-call a business that is paying for that sponsored link. Upon receiving the phone contact information from the user, the advertiser contacts the interested party).

When is a list not a list? When it's a map : http://personalhyperspace.blogspot.com/2005/10/when-is-list-not-list-when-its-map.html I always thought that a site map was a misnomer for what is simply a list of pages in a Web site.
