Hi Tim,

our former Bachelor project has created this website with Seaside: 
Here you can see some nice examples of what you can do with this 
framework. I'm afraid but the source code is not available.

Some features: - GoogleMaps integration, Ajax like tour editor, 
newsletter and other Web 2.0 stuff.

This project was done with Seaside 2.7. For more information to the 
"Tours and Traps" Project have a look at our podcast: 
http://www.swa.hpi.uni-potsdam.de/projects/tnt/index.html (at the bottom 
of the page)

Kind regards,
