Donald Trump's effect on the markets is already wearing off — Quartz
You’ve probably seen her on your Instagram feed: a woman awash in natural light, wearing a cocoon-shaped dress in a shade of golden turmeric or faded paprika. She wears flat leather sandals, has unkempt-but-pretty hair, and is likely in the company of a handmade ceramic, a succulent plant, or a piece of avocado toast. She is LA’s Silver Lake shaman, and she’s coming soon to a city near you.

How Hipsters Changed the World | Highsnobiety
But let’s not forget that at the beginning of this decade, a number of publications, most notably New York Magazine, prematurely did the same, reaching for their shovels to dig out a shallow grave while the hipster endured – no, thrived like never before. My view is that hipsterdom didn’t die, but rather it shaped the mainstream in its own image and seeped into the very fabric of Western culture to such an extent that it became redundant. I don’t think that I’m exaggerating when I say that hipsters changed the world.

CityLab's List of Stubborn Myths and Dated Terminology to Retire in 2016 - CityLab
Whether they’re overused, misunderstood, or wrongfully deployed, sometimes good words and concepts go bad. As CityLab wraps up 2015 and looks forward to a new year full of promise, we’ve compiled the following list of myths we’re tired of debunking and phrases we’re tired of seeing—not to mention writing. Maybe, just maybe, if we all hold hands and jump together, we can reduce the number of times we’re collectively forced to contend with these terms in 2016.

How the Summer Music Festival Went Mainstream - Pacific Standard: The Science of Society
With painted Volkswagen buses, talk of “free love,” and other reminders of the Woodstock era replaced by advertising and corporate sponsorships, hippie culture may be dying, but a new subculture—a sort of purgatory between hipster and hippie—is on the rise.

Hipsters and Low-Tech » Cyborgology
Hipsters have been much discussed on the Cyborgology blog (see: here, here, here, and here). Cyborgology authors have also talked about the fetishization of low-tech/analog media and devices (see: here and here). As David Paul Strohecker pointed out, these two issue interrelated: “hipsters are at the forefront of movements of nostalgic revivalism.” I want to pick up these threads and add a small observation.

The Hipster Music Index
nty bands that might seem hipster because Pitchfork loves them, but aren’t obscure enough because they’re widely shared on Facebook as well. It's probably not very hipster to profess that you like them.
