Pittsburgh and Seattle seem to be taking off, though Seattle has been like this for a while.

That isn't very long ago but Pittsburgh has gained a lot of momentum since then because it was largely untouched by the economic downturn and has been absorbing refugees from other metro areas whose job markets collapsed. Even though the poster in your link did not come away with an overall favorable impression, even he admitted that there were exciting things starting to happen there, two years ago even. So rather than serving as a counter-argument, it actually lends some credence to the argument that Pittsburgh is a contending up-and-comer.
So, because the post is two years old, and there were a few things the original poster liked about Pittsburgh, therefore the opposite is true, and Pittsburgh is a contending up-and-comer?

What kind of logic is that??

I foresee El Paso and San Antonio becoming future hipster hotspots.

Young people on the other hand are fleeing cities like Memphis, Jacksonville FL, Greensboro/Winston-Salem NC, Little Rock, Tulsa, Oklahoma City, and Omaha. You can really feel the brain drain in most of these cities.
If you have lots of money and are able to are willing to compete for the few jobs available unless you have some unusual skills to offer you may be okay in Portland. Hipsters have it pretty tough here.

In my once lower middle income blue collar nighborhood now one of the trendiest in the city, they often crowd into apartments to share high rents and work at whatever they can find. My nice landlord owns several apartment buildings for a couple of blocks. He allowed this overcrowding until it got to the point of craziness. Finally he had to put his foot down on the amount of adults allowed to live in a one bedroom or studio apartment. It's happening all over Portland.

The nice hipster guy next store spent about three months living in North Dakota where some kind of jobs are plentiful at high salaries leaving his girl friend just to get work. He returned and is once again looking for a job in Portland. But they are talking about returning to Michigan because it's been so difficult for them here. She had been able to get part time baby sitting jobs.

If you go where everyone else wants to go, it's going to be tough going. The trick is to find the next hot spot before everyone else does and be the first so you won't have to struggle.

Pittsburgh (maybe it already is?), Milwaulkee, Louisville, Portland MAINE (which is a real sleeper, but seriously...this is one great city for a small city).

My logic was explained in detail in my post that you are quoting. Is there something specific in my response that confused you?
