Microsoft Corp. (NASDAQ:CEO) Satya Nadella might have just made the hiring of his lifetime by scooping up OpenAI co-founder Sam Altman and former president Greg Brockman.

This has sparked universal praise and awe for the Microsoft chief, and some users have also posted hilarious memes.

What Happened: Nadella’s quick decision to scoop up Altman, Brockman, and their former OpenAI colleagues to lead a new advanced AI research team at Microsoft is widely regarded as a masterstroke.

Nadella also won praise for being nimble and responding to new developments

Balaji Srinivasan, former CTO of Coinbase and a former partner at venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz praised Nadella for thinking like a startup CEO.

“Satya wins. Reflexes of a startup CEO. Resources of a trillion-dollar company. Pulls this together in 48 hours from a cold start. Gets it signed and over the line, before markets open,” he said.

The context is that Altman and Brockman were fired over a Google Meet call. This is despite Microsoft owning a 49% stake in OpenAI and also being its single largest investor.
