Over 500 attendees join the 2013 North American IPv6 Summit today — the highest in the conference’s history. The Rocky Mountain IPv6 Task Force (RMv6TF) in conjunction with the Regional North America IPv6 Task Forces are throwing a three-day long conference, April 17-19, dedicated to the next generation of the Internet: IPv6. First-day attendees get a day-long tutorial and hands-on experience for a chance to tinker with a real live IPv6 environment. The following days feature educational talks from IPv6 super-stars, like Google’s Latif Ladid and ARIN president John Curran. These experts and many others are experienced in the ways of the new Web. Attendees are joining for lots of reasons, but mainly, not to get left behind in the ever-evolving IT industry. With the depleted pool of IPv4 addresses and IP-enabled devices entering the market, the time to know about IPv6 has never been more crucial.
