Stern Vint Cerf blasts techies for lackluster worldwide IPv6 adoption


TCP/IP is crap

Well Vint, you were one of the originals, you made up TCP/IP because it just worked.

But it's crap, and now it's cemented into the base of the internet infrastructure, it's there to stay.

It just works, but it does a bad job and allows a multitude of sins which are continuously patched over.

Sometimes a rethink and rebuild is the best answer, but rarely is it done.


mostly run by tech giants like Google – for who Cerf works – and who go to some lengths to make sure that they can be accessed by IPv4.


look, a great big IPV6 bandaid
