Here’s something you won’t see in most cities. Honeycomb the Alpaca has been spotted over the years being walked around Canberra neighbourhoods on foot and being ferried around town in the back of a Mazda 121. He visits nursing homes and hospices. He’s “like portable happiness”.
If you’re organising an event in Canberra that’ll have people coming from interstate and overseas, why not add a fun challenge for attendees that’ll have them looking at the national capital from a different perspective; have a prize for pictures of Honeycomb on Flickr tagged with the conference name too. Score one point for a picture of Honeycomb out & about and two if they manage to get a picture with Honeycomb, or maybe have a first-past-the-post competition. Judges would have to be able to verify the image on the camera, iPhone, whatever and then verify the date/time stamp and geotags on the Flickr upload to make sure it’s a legit image.
