    Where does it say that Markio Calasan works for Microsoft?

    What it says is:

    Macedonia's Marko Calasan got his first professional credential at age
    6, when he passed the Microsoft Certified Systems Administrator exam.
    Now 9, he just went for the follow-on systems engineer certification.

    trolled yet again:

    The real story:

    http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/europe/article5531687.ece

    From Times Online
    January 16, 2009

    Marko Casalan, 8, is officially world's youngest IT whizz

    While the other elementary school pupils skim through their comics in
    the break between classes, Marko Calasan takes out his copy of
    Implementing and Administering Security in a Microsoft Windows Server
    Network for a light read.

    At the age of 8, Marko has become the world’s youngest certified
    computer system administrator and was deemed the Mozart of Computers
    by the press after passing exams for IT professionals with the
    computer giant Microsoft.

    In theory, he could now get a job maintaining complex office computer
    networks, even though he has not yet completed the third grade in his
    native town Skopje, in the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.

    “The Microsoft officials gave me computer games and DVDs with cartoons
    when I passed the exams because I am a child. That was nice, but I’m
    not really interested in those things,” young Marko told The Times.

    “I’d like to be a computer scientist when I grow up and create a new
    operational system.”

    Marko learnt to read and write at the age of 2 and started working on
    computers immediately. The news of his extraordinary achievement
    turned him into a local celebrity and he has even had an audience with
    the Macedonian Prime Minister, Nikola Gruevski, who presented him with
    an IT lab with 15 computers to practise on.

    His parents, who are IT experts and run a computer school for
    children, are considering sending Marko abroad to a specialised
    institute of learning for gifted children, as none exists in
    Macedonia.

    “Marko displayed exceptional learning abilities at a very early age.
    He was able to replicate a computer operation after only reading about
    it on the internet. Now we ask him for help when we have some IT
    related problem at work,” Marko’s mother, Radica Calasan, 38, told The
    Times.

    She and her husband Milan, 37, are planning to publish a book on
    computer education for small children based on Marko’s development,
    which, they believe, could at least in part be replicated by other
    children of his age.

    “He is obviously extraordinary gifted, but children above the age of 6
    could learn much more about computers than generally assumed,” Mrs
    Calasan said.

    At school, Marko’s favourite subject is maths, and in his spare time
    he browses internet forums for IT professionals and participates in
    debates about complex computer engineering problems.

    Apart from his unlikely hobby of training Thai boxing, he has got a
    keen interest in physics and astronomy and was unable to sleep because
    of excitement on the night before the much-feared experiment aimed to
    recreate Big Bang conditions at the underground facility of the
    European Organisation for Nuclear Research or CERN in Switzerland.

    The experiment failed because of technical problems, but Marko is
    confident that it will eventually prove to be a scientific
    breakthrough. “The media said it could cause the end of the world,” he
    said, “but there was never any danger of that.”

    Agreed, that's why he's in my killfile.

    As you took the lure three times (even hunting down another article to
    rebutt him) he's either a good troll or .....

    Does anyone smell fish? ;-)

    OK - I'll admit that I've taken the bait. But I've avoided the
    hooker ... ;-)

    You do not need to be a MS employee to sit their certification exams.

    Anyway he is heading for dead end career prospects - MS is starting to
    go the way of IBM.
