There may be more than a few people who are not aware of this.

The Current version of the Internet is on IPv4. The number of IP Addresses available is about to run out. http://www.iana.org is already out of them and the other countries like ARIN (American) APNIC (Asia) RIPE.NET (Europe and maybe part of China) among others will also soon run out of IP Addresses.

IPv6 day
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_IPv6_Day
Quote:
The World IPv6 Day is an event organized by the Internet Society and several large content providers to test public IPv6 deployment.[1] It will start 00:00 UTC on June 8, 2011 and end 23:59 the same day.[2] The main motivation for the event is to evaluate the real world effects of the IPv6 brokenness seen by various synthetic tests. The event is also known as Test Drive Day.

The test will primarily consist of websites publishing AAAA records, allowing IPv6 capable hosts to connect using IPv6. Although Internet service providers (ISP) are encouraged to participate, they are not expected to deploy anything on that day, just increase their readiness to handle support issues.

Among others, Facebook, Google, Yahoo, Cisco, Akamai Technologies, Limelight Networks, W3C, Bing, Tom's Hardware, Rackspace, Verizon, and Juniper have committed to participating in the experiment.


So the bottom line is be prepared because your provider and your hardware may not be.
