My interest in Gemini peaked after downloading and using Lagrange.
I realized that there’s something highly appealing to me about a friendly alternative to HTML that lets me build beautiful WriteFreely-esque blogs without the needing to mess around with CSS or anything like that.
But, I’m turned off by the need to host my own server. What appeals to me about IPFS is the ability for users to create a webpage just by importing an HTML file.
I’d like to see a way for these technologies to converge, but the fact that a core design principle for Gemini is that it’s easy to write browsers for it, I somehow doubt this will happen.

I suppose, however, that all that is really needed for what I’m imagining is browser support for beautifully rendering gemtext à la Lagrange.
Gemini is a new internet protocol which:
Is heavier than gopher Is lighter than the web Will not replace either Strives for maximum power to weight ratio Takes user privacy very seriously
