Silicon Valley has several spokeswomen, like Facebook's COO Sheryl Sandberg, who routinely offers up advice to young women, or Yahoo's Marissa Mayer, the first-ever pregnant CEO of a Fortune 500 company. But women in technology now have a new ambassador, whether they like it or not: Mark Zuckerberg's limelight-loving older sister, Randi.

Randi Zuckerberg was on the rise in the ad business in New York when her little bro offered her a job at his scrappy new startup. Zuckerberg soon found herself the head of marketing at one of the most powerful companies in Silicon Valley. But she's always been part-insider, part-observer of that world, parodying it with her cover band Feedbomb ("Fund Me Maybe") or in homemade videos ("Valleyfreude").
