1. Medicine Is Not One Size Fits All
Tailoring health care to patient differences used to rely on family history,
doctors’ intuition, and trial and error. These days, it increasingly depends
on technology. That’s one reason why the American Medical Association
and the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society recently joined
forces to sponsor the first AMA-IEEE Conference on Medical Technology
on Individualized Healthcare. Read on at http://bmsmail3.ieee.org:80/u/16802/1631197
 
 
2. Conference Aims to Reshape Engineering Education
High-tech services companies, which have surpassed manufacturers as
the major employers of engineers, need workers with strong leadership
and communications skills, to say nothing of an entrepreneurial flair. But
such skills are not being taught in most university engineering programs.
IEEE and IBM are trying to change that. They began by holding a
conference, “Transforming Engineering Education: Creating
Interdisciplinary Skills for Complex Global Environments.” Learn more at
http://bmsmail3.ieee.org:80/u/16803/1631197
 
 
3. Marketplace of Ideas: The Limits of Privacy
Blippy, a Twitter-like Web site that automatically broadcasts what users
buy with their credit and debit cards, suffered a major privacy breach in
April. Several credit card numbers, which their owners had given to the
site when they signed up, were exposed in Google search results. Blippy
shows what users bought, where they bought it, and how much it cost.
Privacy advocates say people who use sites such as Blippy are divulging
a dangerous level of personal information. But Blippy representatives say
that sharing what people bought is just the next step in social networking
and that such information explores how much our purchases reflect our
personalities.
 
What do you think it says about people’s attitudes toward privacy if
they’re sharing details of their purchases with the world? Does Blippy go
too far? Weigh in at <mailto:institute@ieee.org>

    5. Smarter Fire Alarm Earns Teen IEEE Presidents’ Scholarship
    Sometimes a good new product is just screaming to be invented. That’s
    the case with CookerSmart, a fire alarm designed for the kitchen, where
    conventional smoke detectors tend to go off when there is smoke but no
    fire. The alarm was invented by James Popper, and it earned him this
    year’s IEEE Presidents’ Scholarship. Read on at http://bmsmail3.ieee.org:80/u/16806/1631197
     
     
    6. IEEE Spectrum Offers Searchable Directories for Tech Buyers
    Need components for a piece of biomedical equipment? Or automation
    equipment for underground distribution switchgear? Or are you looking for
    a company that can test and evaluate your product? You can find vendors
    of any of these and more in the new online IEEE Spectrum Supplier
    Marketplace directories. For more information, visit http://bmsmail3.ieee.org:80/u/16807/1631197

    7. Strategic Thinking Makes Toronto Section Successful
    IEEE’s Toronto Section, founded in 1903, was the first section outside the
    United States of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers–one of
    IEEE’s predecessor societies. With a membership today of around 4000,
    it is the largest in Canada and one of the largest sections in the world.
    Get tips on how to run a successful section from one of its past chairs,
