Pasadena-based Perfect Market, the Idealab startup which is looking to monetize dormant content from publishers, said this morning that the firm's CTO, Dr. Jay Budzik, has been appointed to the Board of Trustees for the Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy, by the Governor of Illinois, Rod Blagojevich. Budzik is a graduate of the school, which is a residential college preparatory program. Budzik joined Perfect Market in November, after the firm acquired Chicago-based MediaRiver, a developer of content being used to match advertising to web pages. Perfect Market is funded by Idealab, Trinity Venture, and Rustic Canyon Ventures.
