Ouros once again had an inspiring conversation with me. Two of the things I've said - we're implanting lapdragons with RFID chips by default, and one of the things we'll do for our Reindeer Edition lapdragons is help them find a keeper so they can keep being lapdragons after the winter's over - came together in that conversation with a third point of fact, that many mobile phones now come with NFC - which is just one particularly advanced form of RFID - and an idea was born.
A brass bell on the collar means a dragon is on loan to us for the season, and is going home after we finish our charity drive, but those wearing silver bells are up for adoption. All participants' chips have been flashed with a special firmware for the event; given that there's a good chance some of you will take a shine to one of our volunteers, you can scan their chip for either information on staying in touch later, or in the case of a silver bell, on how to take them home with you when their period of voluntary service is complete.
Remember, you can always drop in after hours to say 'hi' and hang out if you don't have time to introduce yourself during the commute - in fact, we encourage you to come by for whatever sort of interactions you're feeling like, or to find a pet. But do hurry - if you dally, you may find silver replaced by brass!
