Maybe Marco Should Run Microsoft
I'm always wary of stories about young geniuses. It's all well and good to have such initiative at a young age, but how would you feel if the brain surgeon taking on your life-saving case were an 11-year-old, even one that comes with Harvard credentials? Exactly.
Still, you gotta give props to Marco Calason of Skopje, Macedonia. His expertise isn't in anything that would put your life in imminent danger. He's just a child prodigy with a penchant for computers. And he's the youngest Microsoft systems engineer, according to this CNN piece. The certification would be an accomplishment in and of itself for anyone with a two-digit age, let alone a 9-year-old. What I find especially intriguing is that Marco apparently has written a book on Windows 7, although I couldn't find it listed anywhere via Google or Bing.
Some day, that kid may become the first ponytail-sporting Microsoft CEO in, oh, about seven more years.
