I guessed as much, but does that mean a whole separate internet, or just another way of doing the internet from within the internet, or what?

Well Gemini pages can link to html pages and vice versa no problem, they are both accessable on the internet in the same way, you run a browser that turns the markdown language into an image on your screen, processes style sheets etx, the difference comes down to some pretty minor Technical things, such as theres a lot of limitations and simplification to how Gemini is Written and rendered, resulting in much smaller pages faster loading times and better accessability. Mark down languages like html have a lot of bells and whistles, and are often used together with a bunch of other languages such as css, JavaScript, and include a lot of tracking, cookies, profiling etc.

A lot of people have a lot of political reasons to want a simpler internet,

Gemini creates a niche outside of a lot of the complexities of the internet, and I'm pretty excited about what I've seen on it.
