Gestures by Tuppus from Flickr When I was a kid, I had a shirt that said “think” across the chest and “act” across the back.

Hiawatha Bray, writing in the Boston Globe Business section today, explains that the "Online Universe is About to Grow." He is talking about Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6). Basically, we are about to run out of Internet addresses in the current format, known as Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4).
