Adbusters article – Hipster: The Dead End of Western Civilization

This Adbusters article on “hipsters” is still kicking up quite a storm. I just read it this morning and wanted to share it with you. In these times of “personal branding” and Web 2.0 social media connectivity, the “hipster” has arrived; an amalgamation of styles, a pastiche of meaning, a de-centered center of culture. Now, where are my non-prescription designer glasses and my American Apparel V-neck?

The comments alone make this article worth reading. Very insightful.
