Started in 2011, Das Klub Is The Industrial Dance Kommunity. Live site: http://dasklub.com. It began with creating a website to catalog YouTube videos and through a dance contest grew to have users. As more people joined, features increased. Within months the site was the meeting place for people to travel across countries to meet each other found on the site. Within one year the site caused me, the admin of the site, to travel to Germany for my first time to meet users of the site. This is perhaps one of the one unique open source projects you'll find and there are other instances of it running, for example: Go Go Guitars.

AS OF 2013-01-12 THE CODE IS NOW ON GITHUB: https://github.com/dasklub
