In 1985 Michael Weiner founded Microlytics, a Xerox spin-off company which developed technology from the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center into a suite of products including the award winning Word Finder thesaurus, with licenses out to over 150 companies, including Apple, Microsoft and Sony. Microlytics was acquired by a merger with a public company in 1990, which Weiner then headed up through 1993. The company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in 1996 from which is never emerged.
