I was at the University of Minnesota when Gopher, the Internet protocol, was in its prime. It was created by a professor at the University of Minnesota you see, and I had to help implement gopher services.
When the Web kicked off, they still tried to hang on, but made the fatal mistake of not having it totally open, and it quickly died off.
But now it is back!
Cameron Kaiser has updated the Mozilla code with the good ole Gopher protocol implementation. Ah, old times.
