Well, it’s not quite going to blow up. Perhaps you remember Y2k…no big deal right? Well this potential disaster will probably be averted, but it might not be as easy this time around.
Every device on the Internet is assigned an “IP Address” (IP stands for Internet Protocol). You know, those series of 4 numbers that identify who you are when communicating with the outside world. According to some sources, about 1 million of these are newly assigned per hour, which means that sometime in early February we will be fresh out!
To remedy this problem, a similar scheme will be employed (using numbers to identify machines), but it will, in essence, simply allow for larger numbers (actually letters will also be allowed into these “numbers”), thus allowing more potential addresses. This is known as IPv6.
So if you hear fear mongering about a potential catastrophe, like 11 years ago, don’t worry. The situation is well in hand.
