What’s really in and out for 2012
Every year popular magazines and newspapers produce “In and Out” lists that make a claim to cultural prescience through boldly distinguishing what’s jumped the shark from what’s just about to become a break-out sensation.
Trouble is, too often the ins and outs are totally predictable, being driven by the mainstream corporate culture and so-called style makers. What they’re calling this year’s trends are more often yesterday’s news in underground, alternative and DIY circles. Thanks for catching up, People Magazine and Washington Post.
So we thought we’d do a little In and Out List of our own, with a take on the pulse of a nation dealing with the Great Recession and facing peak oil, climate change and the limits to economic growth. We give you the first annual Transition Voice In and Out List, 2012.
