A CMS In Ruby on Rails

I am starting to build a rails app for a content management system. I think this will be a little different than the ones I've seen. Meaning this will be used to manage various types of content not just update/manage web pages. Ok so that's old school CMS
I will be thinking out loud on this so we'll see if this holds true to my original thoughts.
I want to be able to create content, as in write an article about something. and that something might have a attachment to it. example, write about a white paper or some code and attach a zip file. Maybe I just want to upload an image/pdf. A message board?
It will have security on it. That is the part I am working on first.

Calling a piece of tech the 'best' often starts an argument, but just about everyone knows a lemon when they see it. December is a long way away, but we couldn't wait to put together a list of the worst tech, tech events, and downloads of 2006.

On My Own Rail.

I've started my first application using ruby. It's a learning expeirence. I'm making a project list with a list of to do within that project. I'm having trouble getting the ''effects' to work.

Also this wednesday is Refresh Dallas.
