Off The Broiler: Savory New York is a fairly new site and they are using a relatively out-of-the-box implementation of MediaWiki , but they've got some nice content up and managed to mix it well with Google Video clips of various restaurants they've been to.

The Anthropik Network: It's our latest MediaWiki-based project, but instead of developing an encyclopedia with it, we're trying to use it to develop an anthropology of the future. Users are completely free to use, edit, and add to the wiki as they see fit, creating a uniquely realistic, changing world.

Webbys World: Like all Wikimedia projects, it must be writeen in a neutral point-of-view. This is a lot better than other news sources, which can be in any point-of-view (most UK newspapers have a political affiliation - same with US TV). (via Cosmos)

[The Map is Not the Territory] Content Managment System Needed: I can't find one that has everything I need or even one that has almost everything I need and I can wedge in some other components to cover the rest.
