I Read Everything on this Hipster Lit Flowchart BEFORE It Was Cool

When the New York Times took on modern hipsters in their article How to Live Without Irony they caused quite a stir for a number of reasons, and the reaction was immediate and extreme (this IS the internet after all!). I leave it to you to peruse the article and determine your thoughts – I am in the midst of reading ‘Retromania’ and certainly have thoughts around creativity in popular art in the current generation, but not so much on the entirety of culture in this regard.

Anyway, GoodReads took on creating a literary flowchart for the hipster generation. Check out the full graphic and let us know what you think!

About the Author

Michael Anderson
I have loved technology for as long as I can remember - and have been a computer gamer since the PDP-10! Mobile Technology has played a major role in my life - I have used an electronic companion since the HP95LX more than 20 years ago, and have been a 'Laptop First' person since my Compaq LTE Lite 3/20 and Powerbook 170 back in 1991! As an avid gamer and gadget-junkie I was constantly asked for my opinions on new technology, which led to writing small blurbs ... and eventually becoming a reviewer many years ago. My family is my biggest priority in life, and they alternate between loving and tolerating my gaming and gadget hobbies ... but ultimately benefits from the addition of technology to our lives!
  • So clearly, I am as unhip as it gets. I do have Infinite Jest, but haven’t read it. I *have* read “Cryptonomicon” multiple times, though. And “The Name of the Rose”. But I guess that just shows how old I am, rather than how hip. 🙁
