Want to get involved in the next big little thing?

If you've been paying attention to your home directory, you've noticed a new subdirectory: `public_gemini`. That's because we're now running a Gemini server! It's available at gemini://gemini.ctrl-c.club

Gemini is a new, collaboratively designed internet protocol that is less complicated than the web, but more robust and modern than gopher.

Add .gmi files to your public_gemini directory, and your Gemini site will be published to our Gemini home page in an hour or so.

Details about the protocol are available at https://gemini.circumlunar.space
