Founder of EarthLink, Boingo and the co-founder of eCompanies, Sky Dayton is responsible for providing Wi-Fi services to over 125,000 hotspots across the globe. He has gained massive wealth and popularity in a small time, but it was not done easy.
Sky Dayton likes surfing, poker playing and flying airplanes in his leisure, and he now lives happily in California with his novelist wife and 3 children.
Dayton’s father was a sculptor, while his mother was a poet and a dancer. But David Dewitt, his maternal grandfather, was an IBM Fellow who introduced this ‘son of artists’ to technology. He got his first computer when he was 9, and used it to learn BASIC programming. He was lucky enough to graduate from an Oregon school which applied L. Ron Hubbard’s study methods in their education.
