Stan Barber was recognized for his contribution to the recent meeting at LinkedIn in Sunnyvale. He was among many folks led by Scott Hogg of RMv6TF that organized the meeting under the North American IPv6 Task Force.
He was recognized for his work organizing the awards ceremony where several North American ISP were recognized for achieving 20% or more IPv6 Utilization on their networks. Stan is pictured with Scott Hogg below.
Today and tomorrow, people from around the continent are gathering in Sunnyvale, CA to hear more about the status of the migration of the Internet to IPv6. Over 100 people are registered for the event.
After the event, there will be recordings of the talks available for anyone to listen to posted. More details on that will be made available at a later day.
There are several folks attending here from Texas and I am glad to see them.

On behalf of the board of TXv6TF, I want to wish everyone a happy, safe and productive 2017. So much has happened in the IPv6 world since our first meeting in 2009. In the US, IPv6 deployments continue to accelerate as organizations refresh their networks and Service Providers improve their service offerings.
This is happening around the world as well at different rates (some faster than the US, some slower). Today, I can use resources that run totally over IPv6, some are mixed and a shrinking few are still IPv4 only. I hope to see that last group fade quickly as the days pass.
As for the plans for 2017, watch this space!

I want to wish all readers a Happy New Year!
I wanted to let you all know that we had an important change in 2015. Stephan Lagerholm, who founded TXv6TF with me, has moved on to new opportunities. Replacing him is Jeff Carrell who was elected to the board and serves in 2016 as Vice Chairman.
We hope to have more to share with what we are planning for 2016.
