Are You A Geek...Or A Hipster?

If you're a reader of my blog, you're aware that the line between geek and hipster may sometimes seem thin. Case in point: although my blog is clearly about geekiness- it's called Not Another Geek's Blog- you may recall my confusion about rating #11 on Google for the inquiry "Geeky Hipsters." Which begs the question- what is the difference between hipsters and geeks?

Well if you'd prefer your answer in the form of an infographic, I'm willing to bet that you lean more to the "geek" side. And luckily for you, that's the form in which you're getting it. This infographic on geeks vs. hipsters is pretty thorough, including differences in music, attire, movies, and general appearance. The photo provided here is obviously too small so before you wreck your fragile vision, click on the link for the full version.

So the next time that someone calls your fine geeky self a hipster, set 'em straight. Punch them in the face with knowledge. The type of violence for which geeks are known.
