IOWAtasmic is coming.

For two days in September, Mount Pleasant will be the capital of the social media (Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, etc.) universe as the community hosts the IOWA Tech and Social Media Interactive Conference. Sessions taught here will be broadcast around the globe on ustream and downloaded via iTunes. Simultaneously, YouTube personalities will make videos of their experiences here in Iowa and share them with hundreds of thousands of viewers.

How did this happen? IOWAtasmic is the brain child of Bradley Workman, a Mount Pleasant native and star of BradmanTV, who is known as Bradley Laborman to his fans. Tired of the misperceptions about Iowa in the social networking world (Yes, Los Angeles, we do have flush toilets.) Workman created IOWAtasmic to show a host of “web-lebrities” all we offer.

His goals don’t stop there, though. Workman also wants to use this event to help area business people and residents understand and become comfortable with social media. For that reason, he is offering a local rate to conference participants. For just $30, people from the Mount Pleasant area can attend six sessions with titles such as Social Media Marketing 101, How to Use Social Media for Real Business Benefits, The Must-Haves for Community and Event Organizers and Digital Marketing.

“Mount Pleasant could become the example for small towns everywhere,” Workman said. “So many people from other communities are coming in to take classes that will help their community grow. It’s my hope that people from Mount Pleasant will take advantage of this chance to hear amazing speakers who have successfully run businesses utilizing social media and experts who have watched the phenomenon of social media grow through the years.”

To register for IOWAtasmic, visit the conference Web site

The cost is $30 for Saturday-only registration. Or register in-person at the Mount Pleasant Area Chamber Alliance for just $25. (Only checks or cash will be accepted at the Mount Pleasant Area Chamber Alliance.) If you are interested in taking part in the whole weekend worth of events, the fee is only $100 for community members.
