  1. MSK:
    No doubt efforts to get AI technology to absorb 25M or some subset of slides are tostly and a huge undertaking
    but this MSK / PaigeAI deal seems to be a case of the a total absence of governance / bids and due process. how such a sweet deal for founders / board and MSK to profit out of slides can pass regulators is unfathomable?

    shameful for MSK and needs to be a apology and some heads otta roll!!
