Francois Gossieaux  is one of the founders of Human 1.0, which maintains that to understand the fundamental shifts shaking up your business today you are better off understanding the Human 1.0 – which, by the way, has not changed in the last 10,000 years -- rather than trying to understand the Web 2.0 tools.

He is also author of The Hypersocial Organization.

Previously, Francois served as president of Corante, from 2005 to 2007, and as vice president and chief marketing officer of eRoom Technology, from 1998 to 2003.

Join us as Francois talks to host Steve D'Agostino about why we need to focus on Human 1.0 instead of Web 2.0.

On August 31, 1886 a powerful earthquake devastated Charleston, South Carolina leaving most of the city in ruins and most pf the residents living on the streets. Tonight’s guests, writer SUSAN MILLAR WILLIAMS and writer/editor STEPHEN G. HOFFIUS have written a compelling history of this natural disaster that links the story to issues of race, class, urban development and even labor. This is a fascinating and complex and important chapter in the history of America that almost no one knows about. Join us tonight as Williams and Hoffius discuss their book UPHEAVAL IN CHARLESTON: EARTHQUAKE AND MURDER ON THE EVE OF JIM CROW.

My very excellent mother just served us nine pizzas. This was just one of the many mnemonic phrases we learned as children to help us learn the names and order of the planets of our solar system. It came as a shock when we recently learned that we will have to do without the pizza because Pluto was no longer considered a planet. Who made this decision that changed our childhood vision of our solar system? What gets to be called a planet anyway? Tonight on Inquiry we talk with the person responsible for pulling the plug on Pluto’s planetary aspirations. We speak with MIKE BROWN, the Richard and Barbara Rosenberg Professor of Planetary Astronomy at the California Institute of Technology. His entertaining and revealing book is titled HOW I KILLED PLUTO AND WHY IT HAD IT COMING.
