Tooling Around — Why Early Adopters Have the Upper Hand

from Pro Remodeler

As technology innovations proliferate, those who use them first will win.

As one of the last steps to prepare for our impending relocation, I needed to post “Emergency No Parking” signs in front of our row house in downtown Washington, D.C. The permits reserve parking for the moving van for two weekdays between the hours of 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. That time period overlaps at both ends with rush hour on 16th St., which is a five-lane avenue with heavy commuter traffic.

The signs, which have to be posted at least 72 hours ahead of time, not only warn local residents that there will be fewer available parking spots during non-rush hours, they also alert commuters that there will soon be one hellacious bottleneck in their daily trek to and from work. The police department provided seven stiff paper signs preprinted with dates and times of the parking restriction, so all I needed to do was fasten them to stakes that could then be driven into the grass tree box at the curb. Simple. more
