Yes, it is. As of last night and now, back to business.

Good morning, Campers and congratulations to two of our members:

Punit Shah, CEO of Zazu, a Boston-based startup that wants to turnsmartphones into your clock radio, was quote in the New

York Times last week (http://nyti.ms/bD7t4n). The app goes on sale in July and will have a variety of computer voices reading the morning headlines to you as you wake up.

Malcolm Elvey’s Turning Point: Eliot Spitzer made iTunes New & Noteworthy last week, so check it out, lucky iPad owners out there. He’s also looking for an intern, so if you’re interested, or know of someone who would be, email us at hello@startuponestop.com

We just heard about the .Co Founders Program and thought we’d share. Warning: the deadline is today.

The .CO Founders Program is an initiative designed to engage early adopters,also known as .CO Founders, to proactively develop and maintain domains with the .CO extension prior to the public launch in July 2010. This is a tremendous opportunity for applicants to secure memorable domain names and get a jump on the competition by developing their .CO domains before the

masses.

Who should participate?

The .CO Founders program is appropriate for individuals, businesses, big brands, agencies, bloggers, affiliate and Internet marketers, developers,advertisers, non-profits and entrepreneurs of every kind – anyone interested in building a brand online, launching a website, blog, or community, and

those who want get in on the next big thing.

What’s in it for you?

You get a premium, memorable domain name in the .CO space to build and develop before the rest of the world has access to register .CO domains. You get the benefit of our marketing efforts as we showcase each of our .CO Founders on our website and through other global outreach efforts.

What’s in it for them?

They get smart, talented people like you to help us to build and develop the .CO space by posting credible content on .CO domains. By having great COmpanies, COntent and COmmunities on .CO domains, we can better promote the .CO extension and awareness of this exciting, new opportunity in online

branding.
