In one sentence, how will we describe Code Review to the world?

    \$\begingroup\$ Did you mean slogan or elevator pitch? An elevator pitch should really be more than one sentence. Or a really long, grammatically incorrect run-on. \$\endgroup\$ – greg Apr 1 '11 at 17:28

    \$\begingroup\$ @greg This blog post describes it more thoroughly, but basically for the SE sites it's supposed to be a quick description of the site. For instance, SO is "for professional and enthusiast programmers." \$\endgroup\$ – Michael K Apr 1 '11 at 18:24

    \$\begingroup\$ hmm, i think he meant brief description, not brief sentence. wikipedia some website what you guys are after is really a slogan. you couldn't really pitch anything with one sentence. unless it was, "oh, it cures cancer" or "oh, it makes bacon healthy, prints money, and is a hell of a card player" \$\endgroup\$ – greg Apr 3 '11 at 6:48
