IT professionals worldwide: Turn off the Legacy IP Protocol (IPv4) for the day of 06th June 2014
  
  

 

Why this is important to me

We, the undersigned,

Commit to completely turning IPv4 protocol off on all the devices we ourselves use, as the consumers of the Internet, during the day of 06th June 2014, 00:01, to 23:59, as measured by the local times of our main residences.

If turning IPv4 off results in inability to perform our job for our employers, we tell them the reason and take a day off.

If turning IPv4 off results in inability to communicate with our loved ones for one day - we tell them the reason and ask for their forgiveness.

If turning IPv4 off results in inability to buy in the online shops - we do not buy anything that day and tell the reason later.

We commit to walk the New Internet with no crutches for a day.

It may not be easy.

Join us.

p.s. It goes without saying that we commit to NOT breaking the Internet for unsuspecting users by turning the legacy IP off for them, unless they explicitly agree to participate in this action together with us.
