Mark McCahill leaving the U

Mark McCahill, developer of the Gopher protocol and client, is leaving the University of Minnesota. He has a better offer from Duke University and a chance to work on Second Life challenger, Croquet.

He’s also unhappy about decreasing state funding of the U.

Julio at Your Tech Blog writes about it and includes a 1996 article about Gopher.
