I'll be presenting at this month's WordPress Users group here in Portland, OR. I'll also be pitching this presentation for inclusion at WordCamp Portland this year (fingers crossed).
The topic I chose is custom taxonomy more specifically "Unlocking the Hidden Power of Custom Taxonomy for WordPress". The goal of the presentation is two-fold: Inform WordPress users that this functionality exists and inspire them to use custom taxonomies on their own sites by providing a series of use cases.
I'm posting here in hopes that someone uses custom taxonomies and would like to provide a link to their site. I have a handful of decent examples that will be included, but the more the better IMO. Here's what I have planned so far, please feel free to add to the list. I will credit anyone who helps out both in the presentation as well as the blog post that results from the presentation.

My Art Portfolio uses custom taxonomies to organize pieces by the symbols that they contain. http://art.mfields.org/symbolism/
I use custom taxonomoies to list the version of WordPres that code examples will work on at http://web.mfields.org/
I use custom taxonomoies to create a linked list of my clients at http://design.mfields.org/clients/
A couple of hypothetical examples are listed below:
- Sports Blog
- Music Blog
- Record Label
Please let me know if you or someone you know uses custom taxonomies in a creative or useful way.
Thanks for reading.
