OpenAI's wild weekend just upended the tech world. Here's what happened.

What followed were twists and turns as investors and employees pushed hard for Altman to be reinstated, before Microsoft snapped him up. So what's the big deal? The fate of ChatGPT — the AI chatbot that more than 100 million people use on the job, at school, and at home — is on the line.
