Docker Hello World fails

I’m trying docker by following the setp by step tutorial mentioned at the docker.io and I have problems getting it to run:

My-MacBook-Pro:~ jothi$ docker run buntu:14.04 /bin/echo 'Hello world'
2014/09/18 22:10:53 Post http:///var/run/docker.sock/v1.14/containers/create: dial unix /var/run/docker.sock: no such file or directory
My-MacBook-Pro:~ joe$ 

I do not understand this error. Any clues?

    You first need to install Docker. To do that, on OSX, you’ll need to first install boot2docker (and launch the VM).

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
