Is there any SEO danger to creating sub domains that are totally separate in themes on one FQDN?
I understand that to SE's, a sub domain is seen as an entirely different site. So, will that impact my SERPs/PRx/Standings with G/Y! MSN for either one?
Or can I create it w/o any worries.
I'd be sure to not cross-link and carry out separate SEO plans for each.

1. Do a search on site:about.com on one of the major engines and see what you think about those results.
2. Search keywords related to the principal subdomain topics and see how often about.com has a nice position.
3. Explore about.com with the Yahoo Site Explorer [siteexplorer.search.yahoo.com] to see more.
Those three actions should show you a lot about what they do over at about.com and how successful it has been for them to date.
