Sky Dayton Retires From EarthLink Board; Starting New Company?

Sky Dayton, the founder of EarthLink, Boingo and most recently Helio (which was sold for a mere $39 million to Virgin Mobile USA (NYSE: VM) in June), has retired from the EarthLink board. Dayton served on the board since 1994, though he hadn;t been involved in day-to-day of the company for a long time now.

Said Dayton: “After 14 years, I believe it is the right time for me to return full-time to my entrepreneurial roots.” Meaning a new startup. Anyone know what it is? If you do, send us a tip through the anonymous tip box in the left hand column (RSS readers will have to click through).
