    During our interview, Altman repeatedly declined to answer the main question on everyone’s’ minds: exactly why he was fired to begin with.

    He doesn’t explain shit.

    SYAC: In the article, Altman doesn’t explain anything regarding what led to the board doing what they did, and asserts that he will wait for the new board to conduct an investigation.

    I don’t have much else to say now but I’m looking forward to learning more.

    And I imagine there’ll be some time where I’m very happy to talk about what happened here, but not now.

    I just want to like let this process go and not interfere.

    You’d have to ask Ilya that.

    Remember when journalists actually you know, did their jobs?

    When OpenAI’s board asked Sam Altman to return a day after they fired him, he initially felt defiant, hurt and angry.

    After an attempted boardroom coup that lasted five days, Altman officially returned as CEO of OpenAI on Wednesday.

    During our interview, Altman repeatedly declined to answer the main question on everyones’ minds: exactly why he was fired to begin with.

    Below is my full interview with OpenAI CEO Sam Altman and CTO Mira Murati, lightly edited for clarity:

    It’s gonna take a real amount of time for people to think through this, to debate, to get outside perspectives, for pressure testing.

    But I come back without any of the stress of “Oh man, I gotta do this, or the company needs me or whatever.” I selfishly feel good because either I picked great leaders or I mentored them well.
