It is a nice offer, although I fear you will be descended upon by number of
organisations with $$ in their eyes.

That figure is extremely generous, but I am absolutely sure that training
can be done for a hell of a lot less than that ($5000/day).  Perhaps
lowering the budget would allow a little regional coverage too.

Before anyone starts trying to claim money, I'd like to see what people
think the programme should look like, and who'd offer to do some pro-bono
training.... this shouldn't be an opportunity for people to attempt to make
some quick cash, especially with your generous donation.  I'd like to see
other donations as well, of peoples time who'd be willing to do some
training... especially some ISPs helping others learn from their

Things that should could be covered: (initial ideas)

- What do all the acronyms mean?
- IPv6 Transition Explained - 4in6, 6in4, 6over4, DS-Lite, 6rd, 6to4,
- CGN/LSN - who, what, why, how?  Ports ports, I'm running out of ports.
- Turning on IPv6 on your transit (simple I know, but you still need to
know it) - Peering covered too
- Security - Don't turn on IPv6 until you evaluate your security regime and
replicate it
- IPv6 your core.. Dual Stack/Layer 2/OSFPv3/ISIS - Juniper, Cisco covered
at least. Maybe Brocade?
- WAMP and LAMP with IPv6 - what works, what doesn't
- DNS and IPv6 (Invite Mark Andrews?) - DNS64, etc.
- IPv6 and Mail
- Carrier Technology - doing IPv6 with DSL (obviously different vendors
need to be considered - maybe Internode/iiNet could help)
- IPv6 and Radius - Best Practices
- OSS Considerations with IPv6 - things to think about
- Virtualisation and IPv6 ?
- CPE's - The Good, The Bad, The Ugly
- CDN/etc technology?  I know F5 do something... who knows?

While some of the money can be used for venues... theres a lot of places
with decent size for $1000 for the day... maybe some could be used to fly
some people to different cities to deliver the information?  Those who are
offering their time pro-bono just as you've offered cash should be
considered first.

Maybe this is something we could talk to some of the vendors about as well.
 Offer them to turn up, meet with those who use their kit and maybe take
some of it off-line?  Just an idea.

APNIC normally charge for this sort of training... and theirs doesn't cover
a lot of the above.... so not sure there.  They may have a venue in
Brisbane though?

The Internet Society of Australia would love to be involved (I am a
Director along with Paul Brooks, Narelle Clark who are also active on this
list) - not really sure... but I am certain we could provide some content,
and give our name as a supporter of the event.  I also expect Google would
be interested in some way, there are some great people over there (one is
an ISOC-AU Director as well).  Anyway, I'd love to see an event supported
by a dozen organisations... maybe providing venues, etc etc.

Well, I think that is enough to start off the discussion anyway.
