IPv6 is Here

Networks and computer systems across the world are woefully unprepared for IPv6, the network addressing scheme designed to replace today's limited IPv4 system.  According to Information Week, only 6% of companies' report having network staff that is up to speed on IPv6.  But that's not going to stop some of the Internet's biggest network providers from turning on IPv6 and leaving it on.

What does this mean for companies that haven't made preparations?  It could mean their websites and IT services become inaccessible for some of their customers, especially foreign ones.
