In a discussion about larger cities, their actual residents and their desired residents, one writer asked some interesting questions about hipsters. This interesting topic was found on Forbes in their article, “Childless Cities? Bring In The Hipsters.”

You already know my fascination with interesting taxonomies on interesting and unusual subjects. This article caught my eye because although it isn’t called a taxonomy, it is close.

The childless hipsters’ economy and political leanings were evaluated, analyzed, broken down into traits, behaviors, etc. How is that not a taxonomy in the making? Taxonomy is defined as the practice and science of classification of things or concepts, plus the principles that underlie such classification.
