New #IPv6 blog post:  "Three years since World IPv6 Launch: strong IPv6 growth continues"

https://blogs.akamai.com/2015/06/three-years-since-world-ipv6-launch-strong-ipv6-growth-continues.html
It is now three years since World IPv6 Launch, and solid growth in global IPv6 adoption continues at a steady pace. With over 17% of the country's end-users actively using IPv6, the United States continues to be a dominant force in IPv6 traffic levels and adoption, with the top three U.S. ...

New set of blog posts about IPv6 with data on the strong growth in many adoption metrics during the second half of 2013.  As of mid-December 2013, over 5% of the requests to dual-stacked sites were delivered over IPv6 to users in each of the U.S.A., Belgium, Germany, Luxembourg, Peru, Romania, and Switzerland. If we exclude devices and browsers that don't aggressively support IPv6, we get a better perspective of IPv6 penetration into networks and see all of these numbers rise to include over 11% of requests.
No longer is IPv6 "just around the corner". It's here. In the half-year following when I last wrote about our measurements of IPv6 adoption, many of the metrics we were tracking have doubled. This is in large part due to increased adoption of IPv6 by residential broadband networks in the U.S.A. ...

The SOSP conference this year was at in interesting venue, as always.  More importantly, many fascinating talks and papers and many interesting hallway conversations.  #sosp13

Not entirely sure what the middle icon refers to in these instructions for replacing a toner cartridge.  While I have some guesses, those guesses resemble the handling instructions for Mogwai.

I would guess "don't expose to light for more than 5 minutes" but I like the cupcake theory better.

See IPv6 adoption broken down by country and network, as measured by Akamai at http://www.stateoftheinternet.com/ipv6

A number of countries including the US, Germany, and Belgium are now past 10%.

The percentages count the number of HTTP(S) requests to dual-stacked sites over IPv6 relative to the total number of HTTP(S) requests to those same sites.  The rank for the "Networks" view comes from the relative number of IPv6 requests from the ASNs that compose that network.

Project finished!  Baby board book inspired by Tolkein's the Hobbit using photos that I've taken over the years.  It includes Bilbo's "Old Walking Song" (Roads Go Ever On).  See my blog post for details and additional photos.
(For pictures of all of the pages, click here.) Shortly after my son was born I found that I was spending large amounts of time singing tunes and reading poems out of “board books” for children. For the uninitiated, a board book is a book for babies printed on thick paperboard.

Some measurements of IPv6 usage on Akamai's platform across a number of dimensions.
A common question that many content providers and website operators want to know is, "If I enable IPv6 on my site, how many of my end-user requests will come in over IPv6?" The answer to this question varies widely based on the demographics of the site, with factors such as end-user geographical ...

I tried to leave a comment on that blog directly, but failed.

I am curious about the 200-300 million unique addresses statement.  Can you comment how many of them might be the same host using privacy extensions?

Perhaps you could tell us how many unique /64s you see?  As privacy extensions do not have bit 2 of the EUID set, you should be able to recalculate.

In your blog entry, you say that Akamai sees 200-300 million unique IPv6 addresses per week.   Do you have any idea to what extent that number should be discounted for the effects of RFC 3041 (Privacy Extensions for Stateless Address Autoconfiguration in IPv6)?

Here at Akamai we've been closely monitoring IPv6 traffic across our network for quite some time - including the months leading up to World IPv6 Launch all the way through to the present. In this post...

I had dinner here twice while staying at the nearby Marriott for a conference. The food is great and fresh and the menu seems to change each night. The husband and wife team who serve the food and cook are both very friendly and do an excellent job with both the food and wine. The chestnut soup and goose that I had for dinner tonight were both excellent. The space is small and cozy and not fancy, but still highly enjoyable and the presentation was quite nice. The food can take some time when the place is busy or you're with a large party, but it's well worth the wait, making it a great place for a relaxing dinner.
