Understanding Client IDs



I am new to Force.com and I was looking at this Ruby gem - https://github.com/ejholmes/restforce and tried to use it. I am stuck where it is asking for a client id


I think I am missing something fundamental about force.com, how do I find out what my client id is?

This is about how to login into Salesforce with Oauth, see the doc here,

Step Two: Set Up Authorization

In the interface, Setup->Develop->Remote Access, create a new Remote Access, then the Consumer Key is the Client Id in OAuth.
