Breaks down who's a YIMBY, NIMBY and everyone in-between.
Urbanism is a way of life complete with positive attributes that are based on a value system that strives for the collective good while respecting individuality and the private realm. Foremost, it is a way of life that embraces community and celebrates the exchange of ideas, goods, and services.
The hardware- is the manifestation of the physical form of the city. The repository of its history, identity, and heritage, that responds to genius loci, climate, weather, humidity, precipitation, local soils and materials, and the natural environment.
The software—the human social capital, traditions, and culture—embracing residents of varying incomes, diversity, race, and ethnicity. The democracy of the city (place) respects and acknowledges the symbiotic relationships of the college-educated, vocationally-trained, self-taught, and apprentice-based workforce.

Really great breakdown and hysterically funny as well.
Good post, although I feel like you might be wrong about the small size of the conservative YIMBY groups and about them being exclusively in SF. Strong Towns is nonpartisan but at least Chuck Marohn is conservative, and even though Strong Towns would not describe themselves as being YIMBYs I suspect there are plenty of what you might call conservative YIMBYs within their umbrella.
Great post detailing the landscape. Give us some Twitter examples of each group!
