6-6-2012: World IPv6 Launch — the future is forever

Ten years ago, on 6 June 2012, the Internet Society organized World IPv6 Launch. A year earlier, we'd had World IPv6 Day, where many (large) organizations added IPv6 addresses for their websites to the DNS for 24 hours, in order to see if that would create problems. That went mostly smoothly, with a few surprises, so a year later it was time to turn on IPv6 for real. Time for a blog post looking back on

I thought this would be a good excuse to do what I've done with some regularity over the years: see how well things work when I turn off IPv4 on my home network.

→ Eerste Kamer verwerpt D66-wetsvoorstel vaccinatie kinderopvang

Bijna de hele Eerste Kamer heeft het initiatiefwetsvoorstel van D66 om kinderopvangcentra het recht te geven om niet-gevaccineerde kinderen te weigeren, verworpen. Alleen D66 zelf stemde voor. De wet werd begin 2020 in de Tweede Kamer nog door een ruime meerderheid van 109 Kamerleden aangenomen

Hoe is dit mogelijk in een beschaafd land als Nederland? Hebben de wappies nu alle partijen behalve D66 in hun macht?
