We are running out of IPv4 (Internet Protocol version 4) addresses. These are the addresses (like that every device that connects to the Internet has to have as its identity to be able to connect. A reasonable article explaining this can be found at

If you look inside your computer (if you are running a newer OS) you will find that IPv6 is already installed, though often not activated. If you want to check it on, say, Windows 8, you would go to Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network connections, and right click your standard internet connection. Go to "Properties" and in Properties click the "Networking" tab. If IPv6 is installed on your computer, it should show up there. Mine isn't activated.

My question is, what effect does the IP version switch from 4 to 6 that is in progress on the Internet, have on MaidSafe usage?

From the article at "In each case all that happens is people get control, power and ultimately self-interest corrupts each system beyond recognition."

This statement, along with the paragraph in which it is incorporated, suggests that some form of socialism is what is needed. How? It suggests that "self-interest" is wrong or bad. In fact, self-interest is the most important part of everything. Even the selfless people are that way because it is in their self-interest to be that way.

The thing that the articles seems to be referring to is greed. And the kind of greed it is talking about is the kind that harms other people to fulfill itself.

While the article DOES go on to suggest that there are ways that can reward people honestly and fairly for the work and the good that they do, the article has a feel that seems to slant towards society importance over the importance of the individual.

Society is important. But if I am NOT important, how can society be important to me? Self-interest doesn't corrupt. Greed corrupts, if it is not corruption in itself already.
