Worst party idea ever: Let’s celebrate “World IPv6 Day,” internet!
- 06/08 the date of “World IPv6 Day,” when the interwebs test a move from IPv4 to IPv6, as IPv4 space runs out
- 0.05% of the interwebs may be negatively affected by the switch that day (half a million people!) source
» Our big quibble? If you’re going to make a big deal about switching the infrastructure of the Internet, why do it on that day when there’s an obvious date with instant branding possibilities?
