Neither did I. Mustn't have been much of a buzz.

That said, I sympathise with the sentiment. The more secure, the better.

I'm not sure if it's the same event, but IT people were planning to only run IPv6 for a day and blame it on the lack of support for the new version if anything stopped their workflow, as a way of protesting against the lack of adoption. An important clarification is that it only extends to the local machines of the ones who advocate it, and not general networks (to avoid imposing their protest on others). I kind of agree with the point, as lots of companies tend to have the awful behaviour of not solving problems until they bite them (e.g., y2k). One shouldn't wait until IPv4 really can't hold on to support IPv6. Legacy support for it makes sense, but not supporting the newer version doesn't.

EDIT: Nope, it looks it's something else.

I get emails from these guys. It's not a "one day thing", it's a continuous movement that started on June 5th to spread awareness about privacy, encryption and software that doesn't spy on people. You can still join, it's hasn't ended and it's not going to.
