All about Berylium and berylium.org.
Who we are and why we do this to ourselves.
Thanks for your interest in the Berylium project! The codebase is currently being rewritten and optimized, a project generally known as Berylium2. This document outlines some of the new features being developed for the next release.

"Body and Shine 2002" is the code name for the current thrust of berylium development, leading up to a 1.0 release that should be usable by people I don't personally know.
Broad goals of this phase of development are just a click away...
The BSD Daemon, or as I call him, the Berkeley System Daemon....
Creating content with Berylium is simple: anyone who can use webmail can create and edit documents and images on a Berylium site.
Content-management is a little more specialized, but still easy for non-techies to understand and use effectively. Published objects can be made available to members only, moved from folder to folder, featured or archived, or even just left alone.
Right now the list is small and limited to sites set-up and maintained by the developer, but they give you some idea of the breadth of customization possible.
And this site, of course.
Berylium is free software, and the source code is available for free as well. Here are my reasons why.
