Question is in the thread topic. I see "nodes" referenced in many posts. How are they different from miners?

The block chain is the main innovation of Bitcoin. It is the first distributed timestamping system.

Anyone participating in the network is a "node". That's a generic term.
The term miners applies only to those trying to generate blocks.
