Richard Weatherford and Marty Manley are the men behind the bookseller Alibris. After running a catalog-based antiquarian bookstore from his home for several years, Weatherford dreamed up the idea of a database that would make it easier for antiquarian bookstores to find and exchange books. In 1982, he started Interloc to execute that dream, but the company never got off the ground — in part because the Internet was so limited at the time. Eleven years later, Weatherford realized his dream when Marty Manley joined the team after using Interloc to find a friend’s out-of-print book. The two decided to expand the system to include independent booksellers, and, in 1997, they created Alibris, which now sells millions of books, music titles and movies at incredible prices.
