Every so often, I allow myself to be pulled into gopherspace. Each time this sort of thing happens, I find myself falling in love with the refreshingly low-fi brilliance and simplicity that has been forgotten by so many.
Once I make my millions, I’ll definately have to stage a gopher revival. I’ll set up a whole bunch of servers running PyGopherD and I’ll provide free gopherspace to the masses as well as hosting for episodes of LugRadio.
Until all of that goes down, here are some of my favourite gopher links to keep you busy:
- “Gopher Protocol” article at Wikipedia
- RFC 1436 - The Internet Gopher Protocol (a distributed document search and retrieval protocol)
- The Gopher Manifesto
I wonder if I’ll be able to setup a gopher server at school next year?
