SOCIAL ANGST is more than just a blog, it is an invitation to aid in the building of wealth through the shared task of information distribution and discussion. It is a call to engage – engage in society, engage with your peers, engage in your political system, engage in spreading the wealth that is information, and engage in multiplying that wealth through discussion – so that collectively we may become more socially aware, more socially responsible, more socially vocal and ultimately more socially valuable.

Around The Web:
Black History Month Across the Web

Let me be transparent.  My aim over the next month is to offer Black History content that compels you guys to retweet.  As I stated in my earlier editor's note, nothing would give me greater pleasure than seeing Black History Month remain a trending topic on Twitter throughout February 2010.  With that in mind, I ask that if you like it or think it's highly relevent, you share it! Just a simple retweet will help keep Black History relevant all month long!

To that end here are a few web based Black History Month celebrations that I want to pass along.  Kudos to all the organizations that are taking a vested interest in supplying Black History content this month; in doing so they are also taking a vested interested in US.  Help me reward them for their efforts by spreading the word!
