gopher://

One of the things Netscape 4.x is good for: browsing gopherspace. Back in the day, of course, I didn’t own a modem and so much of the nostalgic internet thrills are lost to me – but for some reason, gopher makes my knees go all jiggly. And do you realize how easy it would be to write a blog for gopher?

When I’m back with my zippyfast dorm connection, I might have to start running my own gopher daemon. Meanwhile, here are all the gopher servers in the world! WHEEE!

    You know. These late days I’ve been thinking of setting up a plugin for wordpress that serves the content as a gopher site, just to see if it’s doable. I have yet to find anyone that’s done this but it’d be cool, especially with the sudden interest in Gopher in sites like kottke.org and others.
