Just wanted to add a bit of info to the talk about IPv6 and running out of address with IPv4 (the current standard). You're right, they've been saying we're going to run out of addresses for quite some time, but surprisingly, the powers that be have been relatively proactive in coming up with solutions for conserving addresses. There's 2 major things that have allowed us to last as long as we have:
First off, there's NAT. Back in the late 90's, everything that had an IP address had a public one, but now, with NAT, all those huge corporate networks are using private addressing (10. net or 192.168 net) which has saved a ton of addresses.
Also, ARIN, (in North America, along with the 4 other regional internet registries, have gotten a lot tougher on justifying requests for addresses.
