""The goal of the event is to provide a large scale 'test
flight'," Wood said. "So beyond highlighting awareness about the
event itself, we expect it will help uncover information that will
help accelerate the deployment of IPv6."
While awareness is a key goal of the event, there are also more
tangible technical goals as well. With over 300 websites
participating, reporting on the success and weaknesses in IPv6 will
be a key deliverable at the end of the event.
