For the third year in a row, I donated a little something to the Wikimedia Foundation as my way of saying thanks for developing Wikipedia which I frequently link and cite in these blog posts.
I also donated small micro-payments to an assortment of WordPress plugin developers who enable this blog to be seen by all and increase our sociability. Those developers who made it easy for me to find their donation button or page received my holiday cheer.
This year’s recipients include:
Ajith Prasad Edassery – for Contact Commenters, which is how I might email a bulk of commentators at once.
Arne Brachhold – for Google XML Sitemaps, which creates a Google-friendly sitemap for robots to read.
Brave New Code – for WPTouch, which creates a mobile-friendly layout of this blog.
Joost de Valk – for RSS Footer, a way for me to attach an electronic signature to every blog post of mine wherever RSS carries it.
Mark Jaquith – for Subscribe to Comments, allowing you to receive emailed notifications of people replying to your comment.
Matt Lloyd – for Dagon Design Sitemap Generator, which creates a human-friendly sitemap to read.
Michael Woehrer – for Maintenance Mode, preventing straying eyes from viewing this blog while it’s amid changes.
Michael Yoshitaka Erlewine – for Yet Another Related Posts Plugin, which powers the links you sometimes see at the bottom of every post.
Takayuki Miyoshi – for Contact Form 7, enabling you to email me without opening your email program.
Please visit their plugin pages if inspired. Thanks!
