what is shred?

everybody talks about it, i think its like soloing? i couldn't find anything on what shred is. sorry if this is noobish but i really don't know.
Indulge yourself into the Shred thread, under bands and artists, there you shall get an idea of what it is, and who's in it.

i*[∂/∂t]*Ψt = -[∇^2]/2*(Ψt) (unitless form)

Almost as convenient as Wikipedia, but infinitely more hipster, Dover.
