Is there a formal term? In Ted Nelson-speak, it seems like that would be "hovertext" or "pointtext"... Do you have a reference link to the GTxA thread you mentioned?

Flickr Fiction:

Another use of Flickr could be electronic storytelling, along the lines of the Flickr Google-Map annotation. What gets lost in the discussion of Scott’s post is that these automated systems of annotation could be used as more broadly for storytelling?

Flickr Fiction could go far beyond maps.

Lady or the Tiger

I don’t mean to confuse this with Flicktion, which is writing fictions that accompany photos in Flickr. This example from Andrewlos shows how that works. Or perhaps i’m suggesting annotated Flicktion.
