Wired Magazine has a gopher. It includes many articles. Try
  gopher gopher.wired.edu

I've also added it to the CAF whatsnew server. Try
  gopher gopher.eff.org 5070

(generated by a previous query), he or she gets a gopher menu of the
gopher items that are new or changed since that date.


If you have gopher, you can browse the CAF archive with the command
   gopher gopher.eff.org
