Presentation at work went well, I think it got my points across well, and people seemd to agree, so I've contributed positively to the project. Yay :)

Thoughts about teeth

Gopher is cool, I don't know why it appeals to me, but I think it is the simplicity. Documents, and directories. There you go. I consider restructuring my website for gopher, maybe make my website more of a http-gopher bridge but serving up HTML instead of plaintext, because I do like links and pictures for describing projects. I think I could have a shared header/footer for both HTTP and Gopher, maybe have a server that serves both HTTP and Goper and uses the same index for it. That could be extended to support dial-in BBS perspective as well. I'm also thinking about writing a crawler, it is something I've wanted to do for a long time, but the way the web works today, I don't think it would be worth any effort to write a web crawler. Gopher is different though, it has a solid enough structure that it can be reliably crawled. I don't know if it would be considered poor taste to do this, I'm only planning on crawling the directories. It might make for some cool visualizations too!


I'm usually a nostalgic guy, but even more so recently. I don't know why that is. Maybe it has something to do with being a geek kid during the 90s, that was such a cool time, and the idea that the world was moving very fast towards something very cool was omnipresent. The state of the web makes it so that is is not very interesting to me. It's no longer the wild west I guess. I long for those times when new computer hardware was really interesting and every time a new thing came out it completely changed the game for the better.
