Although technically hosted on wordpress.com (where you can also sign
up for a blog so you can mess around with it at your own pace), you
can go check gigaom.com and techcrunch.com -- they have a network of
blogs that have their own communities. Also, thisweekin.com is a
wordpress installation, and have different sub-sites for different
shows, each with their own communities.

Definitely, and wordpress.tv is the place to go for screencasts and
videos highlighting the ways you can do things with wordpress.
It's also really easy to set-up on a Linux machine and start messing
around with it.
