We had a thread about [OpenAI Staff Threaten to Quit Unless Board Resigns](https://www.wired.com/story/openai-staff-walk-protest-sam-altman/), but I thought I might as well add it again. Especially because of this part:
> Remarkably, the letter’s signees include Ilya Sutskever, the company’s chief scientist and a member of its board, who has been blamed for coordinating the boardroom coup against Altman in the first place.
Okay then. I think we are in a simulation, someone quick saved, and is now experimenting what the outcomes of random decisions are.
A minor piece of information was that [OpenAI Approached Anthropic About Merger](https://archive.is/RCQnv), and The Atlkantic has a slightly longer look and speculation what’s going on
[Inside the Chaos at OpenAI](https://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2023/11/sam-altman-open-ai-chatgpt-chaos/676050/).
With Ilya’s recent turn around, there’s apparently also the option of Altman coming back
[Sam Altman is still trying to return as OpenAI CEO](https://www.theverge.com/2023/11/20/23969586/sam-altman-plotting-return-open-ai-microsoft), something even MS would apparently be okay with, at least publically.
Business Analysis blog Stratechery posted some analysis on [OpenAI’s Misalignment and Microsoft’s Gain](https://stratechery.com/2023/openais-misalignment-and-microsofts-gain/).
Loving it, this is like SubredditDrama, but without having any actual chance of affecting me (I don’t believe in AGI coming out of LLMs), and on a global scale.
