1. Terminology

We need terms for a few concepts. At least the following:

* A software+hardware solution that implements some functionality, which can be deployed in multiple scenarios (eg, frontlineSMS, or Ushahidi)

* A scenario / project / story / deployment / application using said solution (eg, government programme in Mongolia to disseminate public health information, using frontlineSMS, or haiti.ushahidi.org)

*  A technology on which a project above is based (eg, SMS or Web application)

We should find a name for each. Let me suggest for now: tool, service and technology, respectively. So we could write that:

* CGNet Swara [1] is a service, based on a tool called AudioWiki [2], using Voice (IVR) and SMS technologies.
* Honduras Health Mapping [3] is a service, based on a tool called Ushahidi [4], which is based on Web application and email technologies.

[4] www.ushahidi.com

Does that terminology work? Any better one?
