Today is World IPv6 Launch day, and I predict…
In the next 10-20 years, every baby born in the developed world will be allocated their own personal IPv6 address.
Why? Well, wouldn’t it be cool if everyone just had the same phone number for life? Fine, so there are services like Google Voice and the Yellowpages but come on, how many people actually use these things in real life? Instead, what if everyone just had a single address that they could link to their phone, computer, computer-phone, brain-implant-phone, tooth-implant-phone, eyeball-phone, or whatever you might have in your pocket in 10 years, to your personal IPv6 number!? Think about the possibilities!
Also.. IPv6 also has cool integrated security features that should make the world a better place.
Today is dedicated to IPv6 Launch Day and Giant Steps by Coltrane.
