What a busy week!

As the dust of the (extremely) well attended Ottawa IPv6 Summit settles, we are working through some post conference tasks.

I've just updated the presentation page on the site to include the slide decks of most of the presentations. I am still waiting for files from few speakers. You view the ones which are available on the presentation page.

As you may have noticed -- if you were lucky to get in before we sold out -- the talks were recorded. The results of the recordings will go up on our website within a few weeks.

These Internet Protocols are used to assign each computer with an address (called an IP address) that uniquely identifies it on the Web and allows other computers to communicate with it.
