that's a bummer I had thought they were doing v6 :(
(same for twitter actually)
<longer list elided>
So, I was focusing on the end-user (Consumer) set because given enough
migration there that should push more application folk in the right
I think ipv6 still suffers from the chicken/egg problem:
1) users aren't asking so isps aren't selling/doing
1b) ISPs still ahve v4 or a solution (they think) to no-more-v4 and
can keep rolling new customers out
2) content places have no one they can't reach today because there's
v4 to everyone that they care about
3) both sides still playing chicken.
oh well, see you on this same conversation in another 18 months time?
