Hipsters are fake. They manufacture edgy so they can appear cool and unique. But as a group, hipsters are really lemmings.
Edgy are the pioneers that get out of their own box. They fight stagnancy and sameness. Bansky is edgy. Zaha Hadid is edgy. Elon Musk is edgy. Malcolm Gladwell is edgy too.
Edgy people provoke public commentary through their work. They give birth to cool yet aren’t afraid to get out of their own box and start all over again.
Exploration may be dangerous and lonely but stretching the imagination is the only way to progress.
