There is a strong effort growing to bring Seth Godin to Utah to speak on May 24th this year. It’s actually pretty cool! I’m starting to lose count of the number of blog posts and how many bloggers have blogged about it, but a Blog Storm is definately brewing!
In an effort to stir the storm, here’s the call to action – Blog about Seth Godin coming to Utah! Oh, and sign up to pledge to pay $50 bucks to hear him speak!
I was chatting with Paul Allen about this earlier, and he said that a while ago, he paid $1,000.00 to hear Seth Godin speak, this is a great deal! Not only will you get to hear his latest, greatest thoughts, you’ll get 5 copies of his new book, “The Dip”. Why 5? Because Seth wants you to give away the other 4!
The effort to bring Seth to Utah is being put on by WordMob.com – a grass roots group for bringing really cool people like Seth Godin, Guy Kawasaki and Malcolm Gladwell to Utah to speak. We are mostly Utah geeks who want to help improve the image of Utah from both a business and technical perspective. Once a quarter, we plan to bring a major business oriented speaker to Utah, this time it’s Seth. We’re working on who to bring next. After all, why should the coastal cities get all the big name attention? Utah has tons to offer and we want to make sure the tech world knows it!
The real place to follow all the news and info about bringing Seth Godin to Utah is wordmob.com – add it to your reader!

One final note, I have a few times been credited for starting this thing – that credit isn’t due to me. Matt Reinbold is the one that originally found out about it and pinged Jason Alba and I about it. We then got together in a chat and started making plans. If anyone is to get O.G. cred for this, it’s Matt or all three of us. Then, we built the Street Team which inlcudes Janet Meiners, Richard Miller, Steve Spencer, Paul Thompson, and Thom Allen. The Street Team comprises the full effort here, we couldn’t do it without everyone coming together!
