"World to run out of IP addresses soon, Internet expert says"

"Vint Cerf, who helped create IPv4 in 1977 and one of the founding fathers 
of the Web, told Australia's Sydney Morning Herald that IP addresses will 
be used up soon, perhaps within weeks.

"I thought it was an experiment and I thought that 4.3 billion IPv4 
addresses would be enough to do an experiment," Cerf was quoted as saying, 
adding it is his "fault" that "we were running out of the addresses.""

Glad we cleared that up!  :-)
