Just when I thought I was original

I have been working on a CMS in rails as I have written about in this blog. Some of the concepts have been actually created (albeit for other functionality) in 2 different Rails Applications, Elements and Snippets all I can say is FUCK!. Now the whole tagging metaphor isn't new see: TagSurf, Flickr, my favorite - Del.Icio.Us (which is the inspiration for my idea). However the naming of my cms is quite similar to the 2 rails apps. All I can say to that is FUCK!. When I decide to let the cat out of the bag, I don't want to be accused of copying people. We all copy/borrow to some degree but man, this sucks. I thought of the name WAY before I ever came accross those 2 apps. Not sure what I am going to do about it. I might take my "Fuck-em" attitude and just keep the name. I don't know.


  • Is it called Snipements or Eleppets? :-) Anyway, I don't care what other people think, I'm looking forward to seeing another good Rails app hit the scene, whatever it's called! (As long as it's not also just called Snippets, I guess!) Keep up the good work.
