+Summary: How to finger(1) me using the finger protocol.
+The [Finger Protocol](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Finger_(protocol)) is a
+simple network protocol "for the exchange of human-oriented status and user
+information". Back when most organizations had only one computer (likely a Unix
+mainframe) on which everyone had their own account, the Finger Protocol would be
+used to display information about those working at the organization (what they were
+working on, contact information, etc.). Nowadays, although some groups may
+continue to use it for that purpose, it's mainly used by small internet
+enthusiasts such as myself as a way to share basic contact information and
+what's going on in our lives.
+You can finger(1) me using a browser which supports the protocol (such as
+[finger://paritybit.ca/jbauer](finger://paritybit.ca/jbauer) or by specifying
+`finger email@example.com` on the command line.
