The first sister of Facebook

You might not know it, but Facebook is a family affair. Randi Zuckerberg is director of market development at Facebook and also a sister of CEO Mark Zuckerberg. I met her for coffee on University Ave., near Facebook’s headquarters, and we had a fun chat about working at Facebook, Randi’s father and how his lessons prepared both of them for running Facebook. Lots more to watch and listen. Oh yeah, Rocky apologizes for getting his camera in some shots and breaking (deliberately) the 180 rule.

  1. My Crunchies Votes « Scobleizer — Tech geek blogger Says:

    […] 1. BEST TECHNOLOGY INNOVATION/ACHIEVEMENT: Twine. (Here’s a video I did with them). Although Google’s MyLocation feature on its new mobile maps are the one thing I appreciate most that came along this year. Funny, though, Amazon’s S3 service is probably having the biggest impact on the startups and it wasn’t on the list. 2. BEST BOOTSTRAPPED START-UP. Techmeme. 3. BEST NEW GADGET/DEVICE. iPhone although ever since Qik came into my life I’ve been using the Nokia N95 more. 4. BEST BUSINESS MODEL. Glam Media. Personally, why wasn’t socialmedia.com on this list? Actually, I would have put SmugMug on this list too, although where’s RockYou? They are making tons of money right now. 5. BEST DESIGN. Smugmug. (Here’s a video I did with them). 6. BEST ENTERPRISE START-UP. 37 Signals. If Atlassian or NewsGator were on this list I might have gone with them. 7. BEST CONSUMER START-UP. 23 and me. I didn’t like the choices here, but this is the most interesting of the ones presented. 8. BEST MOBILE START-UP. Twitter. (Here’s a video I did with them). How come BluePulse wasn’t on this list? Or Dopplr? 9. BEST INTERNATIONAL START-UP. Atlassian. (Here’s a video I did with them). 10. BEST USER-GENERATED CONTENT. Instructables. 11. BEST VIDEO SITE: Justin.tv. Personally, if Seesmic, Kyte, or Qik were on this list I would have voted for one of those three. (Seesmic was removed because Mike Arrington has invested in it). 12. BEST CLEAN TECH START-UP. Tesla Motors. 13. BEST USE OF VIRAL MARKETING. iLike. (Here’s a video I did with them). 14. BEST TIME SINK SITE. Kongregate. (Here’s a video I did with them). 15. MOST LIKELY TO MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE. Kiva. 16. MOST LIKELY TO SUCCEED. Wordpress. (Here’s a video I did with them). 17. BEST START-UP FOUNDER. Mark Zuckerberg. (I have a video with his sister, where she gives some interesting insights). 18. BEST START-UP CEO. Gina Bianchini. (Here’s a video I did with her). 19. BEST NEW START-UP OF 2007. Tumblr. I actually didn’t like any of these choices, but Tumblr is the one that caught my eye the most. 20. BEST OVERALL. Facebook. I actually like Twitter more, but I can just hear Christopher Coulter having fun with me if I chose it, so I took the bigger Facebook. […]
