U.S. Administration Sets Dates For IPv6 Transition [informationweek.com]
The White House has set deadlines for agencies to update IT networks to IPv6, finally addressing the issue of when the Obama administration will embrace the next-generation Internet standard.
U.S. CIO Vivek Kundra revealed the plan Tuesday at a IPv6 workshop in Washington hosted by the National Telecommunications and Information Administration, and it also was outlined in an OMB memo, which reveals the schedule for agencies to update servers and services. However, the memo also calls for them to support IPv4 for the foreseeable future to avoid interoperability issues.

Public/external facing servers and services, such as webmail, domain name server (DNS), and Internet service provider (ISP) services, must operationally use native IPv6 by Sept. 30, 2012, which is the end of fiscal year 2012. Internal client enterprise networks must do the same by the end of fiscal year 2014.

I suspect there will be greater public interest when the internet "goes dark" due to a system glitch during the implementation of IPv6. :-/
