The same night last week, I was crossing the South China Sea. I just attended the IEEE Region 10 Meeting (Asia-Pacific) on Mactan Island, Cebu, Philippines; and then lead my way to WICON (Wireless Technology Conference) in Singapore. The interesting things about Cebu Meeting are the commitment to reform, both the organisation of the IEEE and its approaches to the members and the community. IEEE will be redirected back as the professional organisation that focuses not only to the academic world. Technology will focus on ones that are relevant to the present and to humanity.
Unfortunately the transitions of the month and the country resulted to unattractive effect. Unusually, Singapore greeted me not very friendly. The arrogance of the academics was still felt. I was not complaining. But I realised there are works to do together. C’mon,let’s improve, enhance, and promote the organisation and our profession.
