Will the real Bill Gates please stand up

There are those who aspire to be the next Bill Gates, but few who literally get to play the role.

Kiyaan Vazirzadeh, a 10-year-old from Simi Valley, Calif., is the exception. The youngster recently had three wishes granted, as part of the reality show "Three Wishes." And, so, several weeks ago, young Varzirzadeh spent the day on Microsoft's campus, where he served as Microsoft CEO for one day.

There were Microsoft employees to greet, a board meeting to attend, and, of course, chewing the fat with his hero Gates. The two discussed careers, technology and Gates own recollections of his own prepubescent days.

Vazirzadeh's brief day as Microsoft CEO in training will be aired Friday at 9 p.m. (EST) on NBC.
