So I blatantly nabbed this from bear in #terrafusion, but it’s worth a share me thinks:
- Of or characteristic of the countryside or its people; rustic. See synonyms at rural.
- Of or characteristic of shepherds or flocks; pastoral
Spotted this one whilst reading Here Comes Everybody: The Power of Organizing Without Organizations by Clay Shirky. I picked up the book after reading about it on Coding Horror.
I’ve not finished reading it yet, but it’s interesting stuff, explaining how the advent of the Internet and social based software has helped previously disconnected groups of people communicate and the kind of other changes it’s creating.
