Last IP4 Address Pool assigned

ZDNet reports:
The online overseers bid adieu to the last 83.9 million addresses needed to bring devices online, marking the occasion as "one [of the] most important days in the history of the internet".


"This is one [of the] most important days in the history of the internet. A pool of more than 4 billion internet addresses has just been emptied this morning," said Rod Beckstrom, chief executive of the Internet Corporation For Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN).The internet is wired with a technology called Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4), which comes with 4.3 billion addresses to send data from one computer to another. That's a lot, but it's not enough, so now the move to the vastly more accommodating IPv6 is beginning in earnest.
