### What's the Gemini Protocol?
Gemini is an application-level internet protocol for the distribution of arbitrary files, with some special consideration for serving a lightweight hypertext format which facilitates linking between files. It's been described as both "the web, stripped right back to its essence" as well as "Gopher, souped up and modernised a little".
