World IPv6 Day – Jun 8 – Wrap up meetup at NYU announced #worldipv6day #ipv6 #nyc

World IPv6 Day
On 8 June, 2011, the Internet Society will present World IPv6 Day. 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.

Since the day is based on UTC  it will conclude at 8pm EDT. ISOC-NY will present an informal wrap up meetup at NYU starting at 7pm EDT.  Among those who have promised to attend will be Sagi Brody of Webair who will give a brief talk on that company’s IPv6 implementation efforts.
