I find searching for resumes to be a good way to find references
in a specific industry. For example, for use in the military:
For example http://kennethbowen.com/kbresume.html
"Northrop Grumman... Navy...
Develop J2EE application to store user profiles for the Navy Enterprise
Portal and the Fleet Numerical Meteorology and Oceanography Center(FNMOC)
Portal using JBoss application server and PostgreSQL database."

If a company themselves announces that they use PostgreSQL we could
probably put up their name and links to where they make such claims.
That would include:
Cisco's Carrier-Sensitive Routing application uses PostgreSQL.
" The postgreSQL database is a relational database management
system. A database in this management system stores entities
such as carriers, rules, contacts, routes, and the relationships
among the entities."
Cisco's IP/TV Program Manager
"OnDemand Manager and IP/TV Program Manager Administration
use a PostgreSQL database to store information about on-demand
programs and servers. A second database stores information
about the journal records of OnDemand sessions. "
"This article shows you how to access the data in Apple Remote
Desktop 2's PostgreSQL database"
and many others. Though I agree contacting them for permission
to also use their logo would be very nice to them and to us.
Also, the PostGIS mailinglist is full of good examples or
larger systems. For example:
GlobeXplorer has an 18 terrabyte postgresql database with the
Sanz (DOD, USGS, USDA, Army Corp of Engineers, Navy)
Sanz manages "tens of terrabyte datasets of raster and vector
data for the DOD, USGS, USDA, Army Corp of
Engineers, Navy, etc." using postgresql and postgis
Finally, I think it'd be great of the Postgresql website had
a search-engine that crawled all the various job-sites (dice/monster)
because job postings requiring postgresql skills are an excellent
indicator that a company uses postgresql.
