Help me create big circles of content that orbit around each other

There have been a few questions about mindmapping apps before but I'm looking for something to create mind clouds...I want to create large circles with content orbiting around it, with links to Flickr, YouTube, blog entries etc. The closest thing I have found is Mindcloud.jp but it's a bit wonky and mostly in Japanese. Also I can't see how I would embed it into another site, so ideally I'm looking for some kind of widget that I can embed into a Wordpress blog...or even a Wordpress theme that could create these mind clouds. Any ideas?

Website to sort and display different mountain heights?

Is there a website that would show the world sorted by elevation? I recently enjoyed reading Plague Year, a post-apocalyptic thriller.

Creating a Map Based on Distances Between Cities

Mapping question: I have a list of (imaginary) cities. I also know each city's as-the-crow-flies distance from every other city on the list. Based on this data alone, I would like to create a (hypothetical) map that shows all of these cities in their proper locations. I recognize that that the map's "rotation" would be arbitrary based on where & how you start plotting, but it seems that you should be able to plot out the relationships between cities properly. Is there software that can help me do this? [more inside]

No, they toilets don't spin opposite of the northern hemisphere.

I was just recently in Buenos Aires. The Time Out Guide had the maps in the back oriented with north facing down. Why? I would think southern hemisphere maps would still face north up due to magnetic north and wayfinding with a compass. Was this just a case of Time Out being wrong/different/thinking logically that the south pole would be the desired direction of orientation in the southern hemisphere? And yes, we were perpetually lost until we flipped the guide upside down and west/east left/right were as they should be.

Where to Buy Geographia 5 Borough Street Atlas?

Has anyone seen the Geographia 5 Borough Street Atlas for sale anywhere in Queens or Long Island? I could order it from Barnes&Noble, but I'm in a big hurry (and fwiw all their stores are "out of stock"). To make this of interest to more than just myself, I'll note that Geographia's atlas is vastly better than the much more common Rand MacNally one (though it's also sorely in need of an update).
