OK, I didn't know GitHub did sponsorships (maybe it's new?) but it's a useful idea and a more concrete way to show support than 'likes' or 'follows'. And I really like this: "GitHub does not charge fees for GitHub Sponsors. We cover payment processing costs, so one-hundred percent of your sponsorship goes to the developers and organizations you fund." And while I am often critical of Creative Commons, I think it's well worth a few dollars a months, especially in light of the work done to support the software projects listed on the page. Plus, I'm the second person to sponsor, so there's that! Even if you don't intend to sponsor, you may want to have a look at the list, especially the CC Search set of tools and the CC vocabulary definitions on Netify (they're for the CC website, but as a developer I appreciate seeing them).
