Weekly Must-Reads: May 2

A list of the great articles from around the web that I have read from April 25 – May 2, 2010.  This week’s topics include: Governance & Strategy; Social Media & Internet -> Fundraising; Social Media & Internet -> How-To Tips; Potpourri.

This weeks saw a lot of articles on social media and internet.  I’ve tried to break them down into two categories for easier skimming.  I hope it’s helpful.
