The outflow of jobs and technological leadership is of major concern to the United States

IPv6 Summit, Inc., a subsidiary of, Inc. (OTC: INFN), announced today that the upcoming Federal IPv6 Summit Information Technology Conference focusing on security in Reston, VA from May 17-19, 2006 will address how the New Internet educational technology could help higher education competitiveness for America -- by aiding education technology for schools, distance learning degree programs, and the creation of thousands of new businesses and millions of new jobs, stimulating job growth in the USA.

The New Internet technology, also known as Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6), is a massive upgrade to the existing Internet (IPv4, in service since 1973) that offers major improvements in Internet security, network security, mobility and interoperability, which resulted in recent actions by the Department of Defense and the OMB (Office of Management and Budget of the White House) that mandated this new standard for the entire Federal Government.

One of the keynote speakers at the event is Dr. Ralph Wyndrum, Jr., the President of the International Electrical and Electronics Engineers, an association with over 220,000 members working in high technology jobs in the U.S. Many such jobs have been outsourced overseas to countries such as India and China, as was deliberated in The World is Flat, the best seller by Thomas Friedman. Dr. Wyndrum will discuss how the New Internet technology can become an engine for job creation in the US, in his presentation on IPv6: A Key Innovation Engine.

Another star presenter is Dr. Henry Kelly, the President of the Federation of American Scientists and former Assistant Director of Technology for the White House, who has testified extensively before Congress on the need for innovative education. He will argue the case for the major role the New Internet can play in originative learning technology in his presentation, Education and Training Benefits of IPv6.

Speakers at the Summit are world-class experts in Information Technology and how it can affect critical national problems, and include Dr. Ralph Wyndrum, Jr., President of the IEEE (the world’s largest technical professional association); General (R) Dennis Reimer, former Chief of Staff, US Army; Dr. Henry Kelly, President of the Federation of American Scientists; Dr. John McManus, CTO (Chief Technology Officer) of NASA; Mr. Tim Schmidt, CTO of the Department of Transportation; Maj.
