World IPv6 Day today - 8th June 2011 - An Event By Internet Society

World IPv6 Day is an event organized by the Internet Society and several large content providers to test public IPv6 deployment.

It started at 00:00 UTC on June 8, 2011 and will end 23:59 the same day.
The main motivation for the event is to evaluate the real world effects of the IPv6 brokenness seen by various synthetic tests. To this end, during World IPv6 Day major web companies and other industry players have enabled IPv6 on their main websites for 24 hours.

The goal is to motivate organizations across the industry – Internet service providers, hardware makers, operating system vendors and web companies – to prepare their services for IPv6 to ensure a successful transition as IPv4 address space runs out.

Google, Facebook, Yahoo!, Akamai and Limelight Networks will be amongst some of the major organisations that will offer their content over IPv6 for a 24-hour “test flight”.
