I work for Mindshare Interactive Campaigns. We build web sites mostly  
for non-profit and activist groups. We've been offering a hacked  
version of MT as a back-end CMS solution that will allow the client  
to maintain the content. Since Thanksgiving 2005 I've been working to  
get WP used as out default CMS offering. Note I use CMS very liberally.

Two site I've developed are:


And even our company's site: http://www.mindshare.net is now using  
WP. Note the previous Mindshare website was written and maintained in  
a hybrid of MT and some other custom applications. Now the internal  
group that maintains the copy can edit nearly 99% of the information  
on the site.

True all of these have a News feed and/or Blog but they are not the  
primary vehicle used to drive the content.

The one big plus is we can develop a new site for a client in just a  
few hours time using WP and a new theme.

See you all at SXSW 2006 here in Austin.
