Are you ready for IPv6?

World IPv6 Launch Day June 6 2012 [bbc.co.uk]
Leading internet firms have set 6 June as the World IPv6 launch day.

Web companies participating in the event have pledged to enable IPv6 on their main websites from that date.

The Internet Society, which made the announcement, said the day represented "a major milestone" in the deployment of the standard.

Facebook, Google, Microsoft Bing and Yahoo are the inaugural web firms involved.

Google has been delivering their main services over IPv6 for some years now. That date seems for them therefore more symbolic than a real roll-out date for the technology. But the other three still don't publish AAAA records for their main domain. In that perspective it would be a giant step forward.
