Jones the planner: Hackney Hipsters
Wonderful article about Hackney - and, specifically, a natural history of the borough as it is right now. The history of social housing throughout the area is particularly interesting; also, I found the distinction between "gentrification" and "yuppification" useful. Ignore the title - it is a meaty piece, with about 2% of it being about hipsters.

This isn't f***ing Dalston.
I walked 4.5km down the A10, stopping every 200m or so to ask 10 unsuspecting passers by ... "Excuse me, what area is this?" This is what I was told.
