I can almost guarantee that if you run for office in California and your entire platform is about how you can make the DMV easy to use, you will win. I spent almost 4 hours there on Wednesday, WITH an appointment, and the line was out and around the building. Seriously, if you want to run and win for any public office in CA, just say you will fix the DMV and you are in. On to the Reads…

Let’s face it, today’s tech business leaders are the Diet Coke of evil. Stealing someone’s idea for a website or “covering up” the new iPhone 4 design flaws is laughable compared to causing the biggest marine oil spill in the history of the petroleum industry or creating a genetically-modified food monopoly and bullying small farmers into going out of business. Here’s a small sample of companies who are more evil than most tech companies will ever be. (And most of them are tied to, and give millions to, The Nature Conservancy.)

I live a minimalist lifestyle for many reasons: for example, I love the freedom, the flexibility, and the financial benefits of not owning a lot of stuff. But I must admit, it’s also a chance to indulge my inner rebel. I’ve been a straight-A student, model employee, and overall law-abiding citizen; yet when it comes to consumerism, I can’t resist my desire to stick it to the man.

The United States must prosecute former President George W. Bush for torture if his admission in a memoir that he authorized waterboarding holds true, rights group Amnesty International said on Wednesday.

Here is a funny short film about an eco-ironic moment. Directed by and starring Felicity Huffman, “Lesster” shows parents so focused on getting their child to an Earth Day parade that they don’t see any of their own wasteful habits around the home. The child , dressed up as “Lesster” the solar-powered super hero , tries to correct their ungreen ways , and gets scolded for it!

Have a great weekend everyone.
