Last year we had the World IPv6 Day on June 8, 2011. This year we’ll have the World IPv6 Launch on June 6, 2012.

According to this joint press release by Akamai Technologies, Inc., AT&T, Cisco, Comcast, D-Link, Facebook, Google Inc., Internet Society, Internode, Limelight Networks, Microsoft Bing, Time Warner Cable, and Yahoo!:

Major Internet service providers (ISPs), home networking equipment manufacturers, and web companies around the world are coming together to permanently enable IPv6 for their products and services by 6 June 2012.

The hard question is: Are you prepared?

Whether you are a participating web company, ISP, or home router vendor – or, in my case, just a forward-thinking citizen of the modern Internet – join the cause and spread the word.
