Needs major source work[edit]

I just tagged the article as it seems NPOV and a quick count reveals that 21 of 25 references are the IEEE's own website. Krushia (talk) 22:01, 11 July 2012 (UTC)

An important IEEE Award was left out[edit]

And it was established in 1972 -- nothing news! The IEEE Claude E. Shannon Award .

Criticism[edit]

This article lacks criticism section. There is an opinion what such kind of institutions in the fact hinders the technological innovations and provides the grounds for establishing of reactionary groups like infamous Phoebus cartel. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 178.140.244.14 (talk) 14:59, 14 September 2012 (UTC)

Security breach[edit]

IEEE has been recently in the news [1] for the leaked username and passwords in plaintext of around 100,000 members. The leak was confirmed by IEEE [2] and they notified members, and instructed them to change their passwords [3]. All details of the breach can be read at the page of Radu Dragusin, the person who uncovered the breach [4]. Sine I am that person, I would ask if any of you could write about the breach, since I think I am not entitled to, since I am the primary source. Radu Dragusin (talk) 16:28, 27 September 2012 (UTC)
