Hey Thoughtbot,

I was wondering where did the name "Factory Girl" come from?

I'm an American, new to RoR, so maybe I don't understand the historical references?

Kind Regards.


guess i'm not the only one who is curious. #785

I love this name so much. It's catchy and possibly one of the most memorable names in any software. I'm curious too.

My theory is it was inspired by the movie Factory Girl about Andy Warhol's muse Edie Sedgwick.
