In 1991, Dick was hired by Faxon, a book and magazine, to salvage BookQuest, an early online database for antiquarian booksellers. BookQuest failed, but it taught Dick a lot and it revived the idea of Interloc. Because computer use was growing exponentially, the idea seemed timely and Dick was able to raise nearly $50,000. Interloc went live in 1993, prior to the widespread use of the world-wide web.
