I’ve been remiss in letting our readers know where to find Mike Chapman now that he is no longer part of the Every Dot Connects team. In addition to writing for The Squared Root, Mike is helping FGSquared promote Interactive Austin 2009, a great interactive marketing and social media event coming up in April. Mike is the Twitter voice for the @IA09 account-follow to receive updates about the conference and to hear about upcoming contests to win free admission and other prizes.

The lineup for this year’s IA09 is … well, it’s mind-boggling the expertise the organizers have put together for the April 27 event. I know that SxSWi is much more well-known, but for my money the content at IA09 is a better value. Keynote speakers are Dion Hinchcliffe and my pal Whurley. That’s worth the price of admission right there. But wait, there’s more!

I’m looking forward to sessions by:

Ynema Magnum, project manager, cloud computing, Sun Microsystems

Ed Nicholson, Tyson Foods’ Hunger Relief program

Andy Meadows, CEO of Live Oak 360 and creator of BudURL, one of my fave tools

John Rasco, founder of Refresh Web

Susan Scrupski, Enterprise 2.0 specialist

Jon Lebkowsky, historian of the social Web (who has forgotten more about social media than I’ve ever learned)

Lisa Goddard, Advocacy and Online Marketing Director for Capital Area Food Bank, who took to social media like a duck takes to water

Sam Lawrence, CMO for Jive Software

Bryan Person, LiveWorld evangelist and Social Media Breakfast founder

And yes, I’ll be presenting in sessions with Dave Evans, who wrote the book on social media marketing, literally. His Social Media Marketing: An Hour a Day from Wiley, is a veritable textbook on the subject.

A final note about Mike Chapman-he continues to keep the Austin Social Media Club blog active and twitters @mikechapman. He is also one of the 25 winners of the Statesman’s Texas Social Media Awards. Congratulations, Mike!
