I remember watching that live... and then listening to Roger Boisjoly - the guy who blew the whistle from Morton Thyokol (the o-ring company) in my Engineering Ethics class. And last but not least, Richard Feynman's quote in his shuttle inquiry report (Ronald Reagan put him in charge) which went more or less like this: "Science takes precedence over public relations for nature cannot be fooled" or something like that...

With global #IPv6 deployment passing the 10% mark per Google's statistics, I wrote a bit about why this is important... and provided links for people to learn more if they need to get going with IPv6!
Global IPv6 deployment just passed a major milestone over the past few days when Google's IPv6 adoption statistics showed over 10% of users connecting to Google's sites coming in over IPv6.

There are moments in life where you can remember exactly where you were... moments that live with you forever. Today was the anniversary of one of those. I was a freshman at the University of New Hampshire in Durham, NH, and remember being in the "lounge" of Sackett House, one of the "mini-dorms" at UNH, where there was the only TV. (Things were different then.) I remember being there with another resident, a woman named Alison, I believe, who dr...
