You wouldn’t necessarily expect to hear IPv6 mentioned on something as mainstream as Comedy Central’s “The Colbert Report“, but yes indeed, there was Stephen Colbert last night interviewing Vint Cerf, one of the co-fathers of the Internet and Google’s Chief Internet Evangelist. (And who also bears a striking resemblance to the “Architect” of the Matrix movies!) True to form, Vint skillfully worked in a reference to IPv6 and how we need to move to the new addresses.
You can watch the full episode, or just the sections with Vint. The IPv6 reference comes about in Part 2.
Great to see IPv6 get this mention… maybe a few more people will at least know what IPv6 is and why we need it. 🙂
