Roundup of Social Lending News – March 24, 2012

Every Saturday I bring you the latest news from the world of peer to peer lending. These are the best of the news articles and blog posts from around the web that I shared on Twitter this past week.

I am a bit late with the news roundup this week because today is my birthday. Actually, because I am in Sydney right now (and we are almost a day ahead of the rest of the world) it is already tomorrow here, so my birthday was in fact yesterday (it is on the 24th). Suffice it to say it was a great day – beautiful sunshine and 73 degrees – so we spent some quality family time on the beach. Anyway, as usual there is a bunch of good reading for you here. Enjoy your weekend.
