(all hats off)

* Think: IPv6 is technological inevitability. The only question that
remains is when will I join?

* IPv6 may be a disruptive technology and it is a characteristic of
such technologies that they are (a) not immediately valuable to the
main customers (b) have little data to show they are significant and
(c) are where the future lies. That is true of the Internet before it
became commercialised (to name just one technology).

* The day you see concrete data showing that IPv6 is important, you
will have lost all (or most) opportunities to benefit strategically
from being a first mover ... aka you will be already too late.

Now as as web hosting organisation, you have to create a "business
case" for yourself. And no ...the traditional metrics used to craft a
business case with existing technology like IPv4 will not suffice. It
may well be a strategic bet that you must be willing to make.
