there are lots of things you can do. make sure you're own network is IPv6 enabled, including hosts, applications, services, management..., nag your SP about IPv6.

most of the SPs I talk with are thinking hard about IPv6 now, and I hope we'll start to see some big deployments during this year and next. that's a biased view though, since I'm only speak with people interested in IPv6. ;)
