This kid that used to go to my church works for Bill Gates right now. He is only 16 now, but was 15 when Bill Gates hired him. I am not sure as to how he was discovered, but this kid is solving stuff and breaking new ground that Bill Gates' top men could not even do! Bill also built him and his family a 2 million dollar house in Cali to move from Florida to work for him. He is soo lucky, only 16 and he is set for life as one of Bill Gates' top men. Man I wish I was that smart. How about that for something to add to your college app, "hired as Bill Gates' right hand man."

I read about this a few years back. Doesn't MicroSoft deny it though?

Well, it might of been a different kid because the kid I am talking about was hired only about a year ago.

He's missing out on High School and College though. :\
I'm not being pessimistic, but his life also has its cons.

Well, I am sure if he wanted to he could always go to Stanford or UCB or wherever he wanted to while he works for Bill. However, it is his choice and maybe all the money is nice.

I would never work for Bill Gates. (And no, I am not an Apple lover...) I just don't like dishonest businessmen like Gates.

Are you talking about that kid, Chris, who lived in Indiana and skipped high school to go to Purdue? It's widely rumored among people who went to his middle school that he stayed at Gates' house while working for him a summer or two ago.
