Last on-site mention of IPv6 by relevant Minister was … Coonan not Conroy

Posted by Dave Bath on 2011-02-06

With the last IPv4 internet addresses having been allocated, and the only way forward being IPv6, it’s obvious that the Minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy should be on top of this issue.

Hunt around and you might wonder if he has ever heard of it.

Well, the Minister has his own site: www.minister.dbcde.gov.au, and Minister Stephen Conroy doesn’t mention it according to his search engine, while going out to google and entering "IPv6 site:minister.dbcde.gov.au" does find ONE mention, by Helen Coonan, way back in 2005 (see images below, taken 2010-02-05).

W…..T…..F…..!!!  I rarely use such words, even those acronyms, but ONE F***ING MATCH for IPv6???  On the site of the Minister who has to get IPv6 in urgently?  And it ISN’T from the Minister since Howard got booted out a parliamentary-term-and-a-bit ago?  W….T….F…..!!!

On minister.dbcde.gov.au, there is one mention of IPv6 - not by Conroy, but Coonan, in 2005 - Google Search

One mention of IPv6 in the site of the relevant Minister

And what if we search inside Conroy’s own webpage?

No Choices Left Conroy

Posted by Dave Bath on 2011-02-06

It's time to kick ass and assign IPv4 addresses - and I'm all out of IPv4 addresses - said by big tough guy

Mind you - some IPv6 would make me calm again


Who is our Minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy and what has he done to address this by bringing in IPv6?

Isn’t he one of the righties in the ALP who is so against acting on climate issues?

For more background – go to: "Internet runs out of addresses: a model for climate policy inaction" (2011-02-04) and follow the links.
