Challenge: summarize the software architecture of a program or system in 25 words or less.

Example:

Email: Send letters to others. Messages to recipients on other
systems are stored until forwarded on intermediate servers.

cloud-init: Automatically find or retrieve and apply configurations for a server of VM so that one base image can be used for any kind of server.

@liw This feels like a useful challenge for software projects. So often I have to go hunting for those 25 words, which are actually 100s of words scattered around the web site.

Datashards: Have a standard for storing and exchanging data securely. Can be static or dynamic data.

@emacsen It strikes me now that Datashards might be a component in a distributed, peer-to-peer backup system some day.
