I just watched the video AND looked back at my terminal commands. I'm typing exactly what he says "rails new odot". ??

What am I missing??

When you type that command you're literally telling it to create a 'new' 'rails' project named 'odot'. After you hit Enter or Return, the app should be created through the magic of Rails (assuming you have Rails installed, of course). You'll know it was created because there should now be a folder named 'odot' inside whatever folder you were in when you typed the command.
