Techquickie Video: IPv4 vs IPv6 as Fast As Possible

Dan York
By Dan YorkDirector, Online Content

It’s Friday… so it’s a good time to point out a “Techquickie” video from Linus Sebastian on the topic of “Internet Protocol – IPv4 vs IPv6 as Fast As Possible“.  Yes, I have a few minor technical nits with the video (such as the impossible IPv4 addresses) and I’m not entirely in agreement that ISPs are the major issue (although they certainly are a part of the issue), but hey, it’s a fun introduction to IPv6 and the issues of IPv4 address exhaustion.  I had not see any videos from Linus Sebastian before but I enjoy his energy and enthusiasm. 🙂

The good news is that a video like this gets discussion of IPv6 out to what seems to be a good-sized audience that he has developed through this various YouTube channels.  Similarly I can see from the Reddit discussion that the video has already stirred up some good discussions.  That’s all good!

And to that point… if you want to figure out what you need to do to get started with IPv6, check out our START HERE page to find resources aimed at your type of organization – and please let us know if you can’t find the resources that will help you!
