I don't really know a lot about IPv6, but after reading this interview, I'm encouraged to look a little further. At this point, I can only imagine what can happen. It sounds like there could be some real advances in identity management.
It will be interesting to see how firewall/IDS technology changes at the desktop level.
It would be really interesting to see what could be done with Flash/Flex apps. Instead of building them to be hosted, they could be built to be delivered and hosted on the desktop. Scary.
