Welcome to the 203rd episode of the Inc. Uncensored podcast, hosted by Inc.'s editor in chief, James Ledbetter.

This week, Inc.com assistant editor Cameron Albert-Deitch takes us inside the doors of the Consumer Electronics Show, or CES, to explore some of the year's most innovative gadgets and technologies, thanks to fresh reporting from Inc.com columnist Elizabeth Gore. He also examines the show's perennial issues with gender diversity and sexism.

Next, Inc.com senior editor Doug Cantor takes a look back at some of Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg's annual "personal challenges," and forward at his next one. He's learned Mandarin and toured the United States. He's also pledged to "fix Facebook," which, well, is still a work in progress at best. But this year his resolution is to hold a "series of public discussions about the future of technology in society" with leaders, experts, and "people in our community from different fields." It's ambitious--but what will it actually accomplish?

And finally, I explain what's behind WeWork's new global name change. You may have heard it's now called The We Company. Have you also heard it wants to not only educate children and provide housing and more efficient office space to urbanites, but someday could run banks, corporate headquarters, and even giant wave pools?
