IPv4countdown tweets daily about the near depletion of the IPv4 address space, also known as the IPcalypse. Foxnews.com, never prone to hyperbole, is calling the event "the end of the Web as we know it."
Is this F.U.D.?
In my full article at EnterpriseEfficiency.com, I argue that the countdown to collapse is partly FUD because it leaves the wrong impression. I also argue that IPcalypse is well-intentioned because it's an erstwhile attempt to make folks pay attention to a problem that is not going away and is only worsening. I conclude the article with my perspective on what must be done to accelerate adoption.
