Meet the Youngest Ever Microsoft Systems Engineer

Marco describes himself as a regular kid who likes to hang out and play with his friends. However, as CNN learned when they went to visit him at his school, Marco Calasan is anything but ordinary; the boy is a computer genius.

Showing CNN's Anna Coren around the computer lab at his school, Marco talks about IPTV, the content delivery system he set up all by himself; how he streams high quality video throughout Macedonia; and provides a service for the country's disabled. Each of Marco's achievements is more impressive than the last. So much so, that we hardly surprised to learn he's also written a 312-page book on Windows 7.
