Mark your calendars

The Internet Society has declared that June 8, 2011 will be "World IPv6 Day".

From their site:

"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 drive". The goal of the Test Drive 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, this is so incredibly exciting.  I guess it takes this kind of event to get people to get IPv6 connectivity and put AAAA records on their DNS server.  I'm not sure that they will be able to outshine the press coverage of World Oceans Day, the Chemistry and Druggists Awards, or the famous Sugarcreek 5 Mile Trail Run
