8-Year-Old Macedonian Boy Becomes Youngest Microsoft-Certified IT Professional

Need your remote access to the accounts receivable server restored? Marko Calasan will get right on that, after he wakes up from nappy time and finishes his afternoon sippy cup of juice.

Marko has dethroned little M Lavinashree of India, who at 9 years old (ANCIENT!) was the previous MS certification for tykes record holder. Marko is now being called the "Mozart of Computers" and received a 15-machine computer lab from Macedonian Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski to toy around with.

When he's not sysadmining it up, Marko practices Thai boxing and is also an avid astronomy and physics enthusiast. The night before the Large Hadron Collider was to be fired up, he couldn't sleep from the excitement. I love this kid. [Times Online via GIGAZINE]
