Salon has an article about hair braiding that has nothing to do with technology, the Web, or anything else I’m usually interested in, but is important nonetheless. In California, you can get busted for hair braiding if you don’t have an expensive cosmetology license, which is dumb. Unfortunately, no cosmetology programs teach hair braiding, and hair braiding isn’t on the licensing exam. That’s dumber. They actually have police stings (like anti-prostitition stings) designed to bust these unlicensed hair braiders. Even if you’re not interested in hair braiding, imagine what this kind of licensing stupidity could do to your field of endeavor.
