Apparently sometime in the past two years (since I packed up my backpack and left the US), the term “hipster” became popular. I had never heard it before I left and since returning I’ve heard this term used numerous times to describe people. I must have missed the whole hipster movement.

I’ve asked many people for a definition of the term, and I usually get a list of characteristics for an answer followed by, “You really just need to see one.”

So yesterday I was in the Mission in San Francisco, home of a large number of hipsters. We went to a park and I walked around the park playing a new game: hipster or not? You can play using the picture below.
