Since I started the API one, here's my definition: Application Program
Interfaces. (or Programmer, Programming)

But if you try to get beyond that to a definition of what one is, I find
a lot of variety. It seems to depend on the context of what is being
interfaced with what.

Subject: What is API?

Could someone tell me what API stands for? I've seen that acronym in a
couple of posts lately. And while you are at it, what is SME? (or was
it EMS??) I've also seen that acronym thrown around in this list.

Thank you for enlightening a newbie.
