A {distributed} document retrieval
system which started as a {Campus Wide Information System} at
the {University of Minnesota}, and which was popular in the
early 1990s.

Gopher is defined in {RFC 1436}. The protocol is like a
primitive form of {HTTP} (which came later). Gopher lacks the
{MIME} features of HTTP, but expressed the equivalent of a
document's {MIME type} with a one-character code for the
"{Gopher object type}". At time of writing (2001), all Web
browers should be able to access gopher servers, although few
gopher servers exist anymore.

{Tim Berners-Lee}, in his book "Weaving The Web" (pp.72-73),
related his opinion that it was not so much the protocol
limitations of gopher that made people abandon it in favor of
HTTP/{HTML}, but instead the legal missteps on the part of the
university where it was developed:

"It was just about this time, spring 1993, that the University
of Minnesota decided that it would ask for a license fee from
certain classes of users who wanted to use gopher. Since the
gopher software being picked up so widely, the university was
going to charge an annual fee. The browser, and the act of
browsing, would be free, and the server software would remain
free to nonprofit and educational institutions. But any other
users, notably companies, would have to pay to use gopher
server software.

"This was an act of treason in the academic community and the
Internet community. Even if the university never charged
anyone a dime, the fact that the school had announced it was
reserving the right to charge people for the use of the gopher
protocols meant it had crossed the line. To use the
technology was too risky. Industry dropped gopher like a hot
potato."

(2001-03-31)

gopher: n. [obs.] A type of Internet service first floated around 1991 and
obsolesced around 1995 by the World Wide Web. Gopher presents a menuing
interface to a tree or graph of links; the links can be to documents,
runnable programs, or other gopher menus arbitrarily far across the
net.Some claim that the gopher software, which was originally developed
at the University of Minnesota, was named after the Minnesota Gophers (a
sports team). Others claim the word derives from American slang gofer (fromgo for”, dialectal
go fer”), one whose job is to run and fetch things. Finally,
observe that gophers dig long tunnels, and the idea of tunneling through
the net to find information was a defining metaphor for the developers.
Probably all three things were true, but with the first two coming first
and the gopher-tunnel metaphor serendipitously adding flavor and impetus to
the project as it developed out of its concept stage.
