Mare Tranquillitatis People's Circumlunar Zaibatsu

The Mare Tranquillitatis People's Circumlunar Zaibatsu is an ideologically decriminalized world offering text-based asylum to those fleeing the commercialisation, bloat and surveillence of the wider net. The Zaibatsu offers 200MB of free gopherspace hosting to anyone who wants it for any non-commercial purpose. Gopherspace is managed via sftp. For further details, including instructions on how to request asylum, please visit on port 70.

What is gopherspace?

Gopher is an internet protocol predating HTTP, which simply serves files from text-based menus. It is most commonly used to serve plain text content. You can say a lot in 200MB of text, sundog! Your content will load quickly and be easily accesible to the visually impaired and people using old, slow computers and networks. The protocol does not support cookies, user agents, referer strings or any analogues of these, so there is almost no scope for tracking.

Sounds great, how do I get there?

It's probably easiest to get started using a gopher-to-web proxy. If you like what you see, you can start trying some of the many native gopher clients.
