November 25, 2002. Digital media software company, Roxio, purchases the assets of the former Napster, including name, logo, domain name, technology portfolio, and other intellectual property. Roxio was the first company to attempt to use the Napster brand for a music service, renaming PressPlay as Napster 2.0.

Edwin Kwan

 The Australian government  has shelved plans to ban ransomware payments to cybercriminal groups for at least two years. The government had put the question to the industry in a consultation on whether it should prohibit the payments of ransoms, extortion demands by cybercriminals by victims of cybercrime and or insurers. And if so, under what circumstances?

Trac Bannon

 The news of San Altman sacking by the OpenAI Board of Directors shook the world on Friday, November 17th. As events unfolded in the following hours and days, the world suffered collective whiplash. While many are asking why the board made that decision, more profound questions are being raised about the balance between innovative leadership and effective governance.

Katy Craig

The swift resolution culminating in Altman's return underscores a pivotal shift in corporate governance within tech companies. It's a clear message that visionary leadership, often personified by figures like Altman, cannot be easily sidelined, especially when it resonates so strongly with employees and aligns with key stakeholders interests.

Shannon Lietz

With all the brouhaha going on with Sam Altman and OpenAI, there's a lot to unpack and digest. When OpenAI, not yet a year ago, released its ChatGPT to the world it was pretty obvious at the time that they were chasing adoption and velocity as a brand new organization entering into the market. But I don't know that anybody would have predicted 100 million folks adopting ChatGPT as quickly as they did.

Olimpiu Pop

The recent turmoil at OpenAI, stemming from the ousting of CEO Sam Altman, has thrown the AI community into a state of intense discussion and speculation. We have a whole saga that looks more like a new season of HBO's Game of Thrones than a sane tech company that is crafting the future of humanity.
