"Hipster" is a pejorative like "douchebag" or "nerd." It is a venn diagram of characteristics in which "you" and "people you hate" overlap, creating a person just enough like you to aggravate but just enough unlike you to be dismissive.

This is why there will never be a "hard boiled" definition - a hipster is someone you don't like, for reasons that are best left unsaid, because the reasons aren't important, the dislike is.
