Some of the Sydney feedback noted they perceived me as a "techno-hippy." Besides giving my family lots of laughs, I have been wondering what the heck a techno hippy is! :-)
The Urban Dictionary has a definition:
a modern version of the 60's stereotype, the techno hippie is left wing idealist,usually university educated, in a low income job, has multiple tattos, piercings and strange muilt-colured hair styles.
socially, the techno hippie attends out-door festivals and illegal rave parties, where large ammounts of drugs are consumed. also spends much time playing computergames and surfing, both the net and waves.
On Metafilter, a user name loquacious noted
"I'm more-or-less a techno hippy. Somewhere between gutterpunk and dirt hippy."
Isn't it interesting how we self identify? How we create labels that give us a way to identify others? It is fascinating.
What do you think a techno-hippy is?
That said, Techno Hippy seems to be a common user name, there are sites devoted to people who self identify as such (here, here and here) and in general, it gets a lot of hits on Google!
