The Internet Society has organised an event for a week from now, World IPv6 Day. The event is being held on June 8, which is a little over a week from now. It may seem insignificant, as there's no product launch, and nothing to show, but the behind-the-scenes of it is going to be quite mind-blowing, eventually. According to the website:
World IPv6 Launch represents a major milestone in the global deployment of IPv6. As the successor to the current Internet Protocol, IPv4, IPv6 is critical to the Internet's continued growth as a platform for innovation and economic development.
Who is participating? Well, just a few large companies such as Akamai, Comcast, Google, AT&T, Google, Time Warner Cable, Cisco, Facebook, Microsoft Bing, Yahoo! and more. Even a local ISP from my puny little state here in South Australia, Internode, are participating.
