Zippies are techno- hippies with suss. 1990s technoperson, in contradiction to yuppies. The Zippies were an attempt by Fraser Clark and others, to create a unique subcultue that combined the 1990s techno hemisphere with the 1960s Earth person. The result was not always what one would expect. Various incarnations of Zippies exist, usually armed with smiley badges and outspokenly anti-Yuppie. Some would place Robert Anton Wilson as the founder of Zippiedom. Others would cite Mondo 2000, Fraser Clark, or even Timothy Leary. Whatever, the Zippy meme has now fallen on fertile ground, and is spreading all around us. There is even an alt.culture.zippies newsgroup! Zippies are an unlikely fusion between hippies and techno-pagans. They are the product of UK dance-scene hedonism, cyber street tech, pagan spirituality, postpunk anarchism, New Age travellers, go-for-it entrepreneurism and rave-goers.
