What comes after IPv6 and DNS??

Bill St. Arnaud, Weblog, Dec 09, 2010
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Bill St. Arnaud taps into some of the scepticism and angst surrounding the need to extend or change the current internet addressing system. This comes because the current system, IPv4, is running out of addresses. But there has been no widespread takeup of the alternative, IPv6. Meanwhile, what about internet security and openness. In the middle of the Wikileaks war, we observe, "those who want to control and restrict the Internet are only creating an environment that insures the exact opposite outcome." Thus, for example, we may see - in order to prevent central government seizure of IP addresses - "a .p2p TLD that is totally decentralized and that does not rely on ICANN or any ISP's DNS service [which] will help insure an Open Internet."
