Foursquare Raises $10 Million in Funding, Forgets To Renew Domain Name

Foursquare Raises $10 Million in Funding, Forgets To Renew Domain Name: "The lead is coming from TechCrunch. Here is a quote:
Yesterday, Foursquare had some downtime. That’s nothing new, startups have downtime all the time — see: Twitter, that was their M.O. for about a year — but the reason for Foursquare’s appears to be a little humorous.
While the site is back up and running now, it appears that Foursquare forgot to renew their domain name, which expired on March 25. As a result, GoDaddy, the registrar, pulled the site and put up their own landing page. Which some people noticed on Twitter and other tipped us about."
