Let’s say, hypothetically, you were at technically-minded wizard of interactive wonder. As all technically-minded wizards of interactive wonder, you have a ludicrously adorable little ball of fluff as a pet, confident and familiar. It’s cuter than an Aibo, simpler to look after and doesn’t need to be fed oil and paper, or have it’s switch tickled.
It’s a question that Dare to be Digital is looking for help with. The competition has launched an online survey using Twitter to find a suitable name for the hairy wee critter, using the hashtag #namehairydare.
So, please. Please help. The Dare trust never puts down an unnamed hairy thing, but they need your help. For only £2 per month, this as yet unidentified mass of hair/fur can be given a cosy blanket, a dish with his/her/it’s name on it and a grad student who can attempt to find out what food and beverages it likes. It could be biscuits, it could be dead flies, we just don’t know.
Are we a compassionate community or a lacklustre cadre of uncaring contemptible cads?
Vote now, give this thing a name. Think hard. Go to Twitter. Tell the world. You have only hours to beat the heck out of the current ideas…
