What are some current hipster trends that I should be paying attention to?

My understanding of hipster culture, whether accurate or completely naive, is that things the "mainstream" culture enjoys are all things that started out in the hipster culture--everything from wearing jeans with holes to buying organic foods were at one time strictly hipster things to do, but are now taken for granted (or at least eagerly accepted) by the mainstream culture without any thought of origination.
So, what are some things happening in hipster culture right now that my very mainstream friends will be taking for granted in a few years? (Please provide examples that aren't just fashion trends, although that is okay--I am mostly interested philosophies, music, sciences, social trends/acceptable behaviors, economic habits, etc.)
Also, how can I have more hipster influences? Blogs to keep up on? Online newspapers? Other resources?
For what it's worth, I do not consider myself mainstream at all, but I am not hipster either. I am somewhere in cultural purgatory, probably with most of society, but my friends tend to be mainstream to the extreme, and I don't have any other influences right now.
