Something not mentioned in the article is that OpenAI is in direct competition with several other non-profits whose goals are (or include) to ensure provably friendly AI — MIRI being the obvious example. I’m a little worried that all of these seem to be run on the west coast of the US and funded by the same group of ‘california ideology’ folks — if there are any hardcore marxists around who want to ensure provably friendly AI, I recommend that they set up some competition too!
