the gopher:// manifesto. 14 Apr 2004: “Gopher is an infoserver which can deliver text, graphics, audio, and

function of the server info-tree and not in the doc, layout is kept to
its most frugal minimum, and is standard across all docs. No graphic
design means its the ideal navigable interface, a hypertext Eden.” Story [RootPrompt — Nothing but Unix]
it isn't really hypertext as much as archived text, but gopher is good.
