In other words, "why bother implementing IPv6, if every website is accessible on IPv4 anyways?" To do something about this, let's continue the trend set by the World IPv6 Day in 2011 and World IPv6 Launch in 2012, this year by World IPv6 Jump, turning off IPv4 on your websites and services for 24 hours!"

Like many other A10-based devices the Cubieboard features 1GB of RAM, 100 Megabit Ethernet port, 4GB onboard NAND flash, 2 USB and 1 SATA port, Audio In/Out, SD/MMC slot and an IR receiver. But probably being somewhat inspired by the Raspberry Pi, this new device comes without a case and adds to the 'hackability' of the SoC by sporting a lot of extension pins for I2C, SPI, LCD, sensors and GPIO. According to the project website, the board (pictures) will cost $49, manufacturing has already began and the first shippings start next week."
Roman Mamedov writes: It's 2011, IPv4 addresses are officially exhausted, and the world's largest geek-oriented website, Slashdot, still doesn't support IPv6 on its most-visited address, slashdot.org. This is true even for the new AJAX and CSS redesigned version of the website released just last month. Slashdot continues to publish one IPv6-related story after another. But it has not been specific about if and how it will offer an IPv6 upgrade to the Slashdot website itself, nor named any dates.
Roman Mamedov writes: With the IPv4 exhaustion looming on the horizon, will the original Internet be reduced to the "traditional mass-media" model, strictly separating the participants into "publishers" of content, and mere "consumers" of it? How can we ensure that all users of the Internet will always be free to directly communicate and cooperate with each other?
