super-controversial!!! j/k I love wee gopher

OK, Gopher, you win

On the Gopher vs Gemini vs (small) WWW, I'm choosing Gopher. As for why not the web, you probably can guess the reasons. So let me skip that point. As for Gemini, well, it's kind of half baked at this point. The protocol is not really finished and while it kind of works it has quite a few rough edges here and there. On top of that, I really cannot see it is much better than Gopher. True, Gemtext is easier than gopher maps, but once you learn it, you learn it, and it's not like gopher maps are that difficult. And most of the time I just use plain text anyway.

In general, I think serving the same content over Gemini and Gopher is cool and good.

I agree about Gopher maps. What I really like about Gemini over Gopher is the TLS.

Yes, that's always a concern. However there are Gopher implementations around which include TLS
