Now 35, Dayton has turned entrepreneur once more, serving as chief executive officer of Helio, a startup phone service designed for under-30s, with a potpourri of extras that includes videos, games, and access to the MySpace (NWS ) social-networking site. These days he’s not hitting up investors for money—the company is financed with $400 million from joint venture partners EarthLink and South Korean phone company SK Telecom (SKM ). He’s also chairman of Boingo, a company that’s linking wireless “hot spots” in hotels and airports to sell to computer users who need to connect to the Internet on the go.
