What Comes After the Hipster?

Several smart people weigh in on what will come after the hipster, which seems like an odd thing for smart people to weigh in on. So it goes.

The best bet for the next thing would be for something to emerge from the Occupy movement: less concerned about music and clothing, more concerned about politics; less concerned about differentiating yourself from the people around you, more concerned about working with them; less concerned about status, more concerned about social change; less ironic, more earnest; less polished, more grungy.
