For now (until the address space runs out), this is a chicken and egg
problem. Nobody puts up content on ipv6, so nobody demands ipv6 access
from their isp, so nobody puts up content....
What's required is critical mass. One amusing approach to this issue is
the IPv6 experiment. Much of the early commercial growth of the internet
was around "adult" content. So, apparently these guys are creating a site
which was only accessible over IPv6 and had 10GB of free adult content to
create some motivation and see what would happen.
Apparently there is to be "family" content too.
