This is a class page using customized WordPress MU; notice that it pulls in posts by students for other students to comment on, and even vote on.  Student writing actually becomes publication, right off the bat.  Very cool use of WordPress MU.

A community-built database of interior design themes, strategies, and practices, illustrated by images and indexed by folksonomy.  With citations!  I love this and can imagine many, many more applications for the overall template.
