oh my GOSH I hate all the overloaded terms used on the Web 😭

Trying to explain what "API" and "server" can mean in different contexts to folks can be really hard, especially if they haven't gotten a ton of computing fundamentals and only know certain very specific definitions, e.g. API == the API presented by an HTTP server, server == some black box that we talk to on the Web.
