Calling Kottke a hipster gives hope to us geeks everywhere.

Jason may be a geekster, but at least he doesn't have "parallel diaristic concerns." Give me a fucking break -- and I say this as a former art history major.

I think the hipster cleansing would have to start with the great online hipster refuge and time suck: Friendster! (p.s. you forgot to add "iPod-donning" to that list of Kottke hipster qualities)

Let's not forget that he grew up in the midwest, then moved to California and New York to get a quick buck like any other carpetbagger, I mean, "hipster."

Rarely do hipsters trust their own kind.

I don't understand what you mean. Are you saying that the world should be rid of David Shapiro and his ilk? What exactly is wrong with him?
