What is a Hipster?

I have been interested in this concept for a while now.
I get called that sometimes but I am still not sure what people mean when they call people that.

I certainly don't associate myself with the images posted on
this blog. (Although, I have to admit Tumblr has some goldmine for mindless entertaining photos)

My mate Nigel retweeted this story by Time magazine on the idea of Hipster culture.
The history of how the concept started is accurate from other sources I had read.... circa the Jack Kerouac and Ginsberg era.

The end of the article gets a bit confusing or perhaps it was a soft commercial plug for Urban Outfitters?!
I don't know what happened, it was an interesting angle they started with then it all turned out to be a bit vague.
