Looking Back on the Alibris IPO

The issues surrounding the failed Alibris IPO last year have become infused with rumors and speculation among booksellers (Wiki: IPO). Therefore, I was delighted (and surprised) when Reuters featured Alibris CEO Manley in a recent article about auction vs. traditional IPOs. No mention of future plans of course. I am hoping someone steps up and infuses some practical business knowledge into this company before we lose one of the greats. Perhaps we can reference Mr. Manley to last months post about a self-taught MBA (title: The Useless MBA).
