Meet Harry Schmidt. He works as a product strategist at Wildfire, the social-marketing startup that Google just bought for $250 million.

He’s also Mark Zuckerberg’s brother-in-law. His wife is Donna Zuckerberg, one of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s sister.

Schmidt also works with Arielle Zuckerberg, Donna and Mark’s younger sister.
