Hipster? Undefined.

I feel that the definition of a hipster is incredibly vague. Like, you know it when you see it?

I associate hipsterism, accurately or not, with the vague feeling (which strikes me sometimes) that anything Everyone likes can’t possibly be Good.

(This sentiment isn’t consistently true. There are really popular things which are horrible, and some that are excellent, and many which fall in the awkward sweet spot in between.)

Anyone have a better definition, or is this like youth ministry, and it just hasn’t existed long enough to be well defined?
