Chris Pirillo and Adam Kalsy have announced they’re working on a new, large scale open source CMS project that aims to “de-geekify” website tools. The project will be built on the open source Drupal framework.

Pirillo is hoping to deliver a multi-faceted, open source, easy to use end CMS. To break that down further: imagine installing a package on your web host that immediately delivered Digg style functionality, or photo sharing, a community forum, a blog, a social network ala Facebook, or even a clone of the growing number of FriendFeed style sites, or a combination of all or any of them. Hereâ€™s the important difference to existing solutions: imagine that you wouldnâ€™t have to touch a piece of code to activate the various aspects. Imagine that a color change made in one module automatically applies across all module or as specified, without the need (again) to touch code.
