Before the web was really a thing, Gopher was how you shared information.
Feeling a little nostalgic, I fired up the Lynx browser and entered a Gopher directory URL. I found the Gopher site of Seattle Tourism that mentioned visiting the Kingdome (imploded in 2000) and a link to check out the “up and coming grunge music” scene. I think I was the first visitor to this site in over 20 years!
A funny little bit of internet history.
