About Gopher & GopherSpace

 "Gopher" - in this case - is an information service, network
 protocol, and distributed document delivery system which uses a
 hierarchical file structure that transcends system architectures
 to deliver files and documents.

 A "network protocol" is a set of instructions by which one computer
 connects to other computers on a network. The computer in which
 a Gopher resides does so with other networked computers so the
 Gopher can deliver files and documents to them.

 Gopher is also an online "space" that is free of advertising and
 commercialism. Because it doesn't use "cookies," display images,
 support Flash, Java or Java-script, Gopher may be the last
 commercial-free space on the Internet.

Why Gopher?

 Gopher is simple. That means it's easy to set up and maintain,
 and there's less to go wrong. A Gopher server can be put into
 production in a very short period of time. 

 Gopher is efficient. In an era of limited resources, the info-server
 had to be. Large text files can be delivered with a minimum of
 overhead on both the server and the client.

 Gopher is easy to navigate. Using a simple menu interface or
 directory tree listing, one can easily select files and documents
 by means of a pointing device or a few simple keystrokes.

 Gopher makes order out of chaos. It uses a hierarchical file system
 that transcends system architectures to deliver files and data.
 Directory trees arrange themselves in ascending order.
