Some links to kick off your Thursday, as I head off to moderate a panel at Future Forward:
* Will Baidu.com follow Alibaba.com down IPO road?
* Fred Wilson largely debunks the “selection bias” issue, vis-a-vis venture capital returns.
* Chuck Prince apparently “retired” from Citigroup. John Gapper calls an ouster and ouster.
* Exchange mergers continue, as Nasdaq gets Philly.
