Fellow AOL blogger Tom Taulli at Blogging Stocks speculates that YouTube may be preparing for an IPO
. The evidence? 1) YouTube's investor is Sequoia Capital, which was also an early investor in Google and "is not about making a great returns on its investments; rather, it wants to make blow-out returns." 2) YouTube just hired Gideo Yu
, former Yahoo! treasurer, to be its CFO. Despite YouTube's youth--it was founded just 19 months ago--Taulli says a YouTube IPO would be "easy" considering its 40% market share and 100 million videos viewed each day.
