Read it on the web-news:

The "Yindie" is us. The Yindie is the follow-up to the Yuppie (Young Urban People). It is a cross-breed between "Yuppie" and "Indie" (Independent). So it is either an independent Yuppie or a Y(oung Urban People)-Indie...

He drinks Chai Latte, has a W-Lan and an iPod and tries to be as independent and individuall as he can be. So he doesn't wear jeans by Gucci, but by Urban Outfitters, whose brand-name not everyone knows.

The Yindie is between 20 and 35 years old and has a job.

Are we Yindie?


Edit: The Yinide is permanently googling.

'Yindies' sounds frighteningly like the 'idiots' from Nathan Barley.

The idiots are self regarding consumer slaves, oblivious to the paradox of their uniform individuality. They sculpt their hair to casual perfection. They wear their wastebands below their balls. They babble into handheld twit machines about that cool email with the woman being bummed by a wolf. Their cool friend made it. He's an idiot too.

I've been thinking about this. "Idiots" have managed to get a job which they deem to be cool, probably in media or some sort of fashionable consdumer industry thus making them incredibly self satisfied twats as they get to be arbiters of taste. The yindie has the standard soul destroying job the rest of us has but desperately purchases the goods that the Idiots produce in an attempt to convince themselves they are still an urban warrior of some sort.

Idiots flog shit to Yindies becuase the idiots have convinced the yindies that they're who they want to be. Maybe?
