The World Internet Forum has a World IPv6 domain explaining the World IPv6 Day. IPv6 has been the long talked about successor of the present day IPv4 which is rapidly becoming too small.
On 8 June, 2011, Google, Facebook, Yahoo!, Akamai and Limelight Networks will be amongst some of the major organisations that will offer their content over IPv6 for a 24-hour “test flight”. The goal of the Test Flight Day is to motivate organizations across the industry – Internet service providers, hardware makers, operating system vendors and web companies – to prepare their services for IPv6 to ensure a successful transition as IPv4 addresses run out.
I know it’s important but somehow I am failing to be excited about this event.
