Weekly Must-Reads: May 16

A list of great articles from around the web that I posted to Twitter from May 2 – May 15, 2010.  This week’s topics include: Strategy & Governance; Social Media & Internet >> Fundraising; Social Media & Internet >> Recreation; Israel; Banking & Economy; and Potpourri.

I didn’t have so much time last week, forcing me to combine 2 weeks worth of links. Man, oh man. I hope you’ve got some time, there are some great articles below.  Not to mention some really funny ones, as well. Enjoy them both.
