Open Source Thanks

In a previous post (5 Ways to Contribute to Open Source - It’s Not All Code) I mentioned the simplest way to be involved in open source is to simply Tweet about the project or by saying thanks to the creator/contributors. In the post i said “Most open source authors don’t get paid, saying thankyou is not only nice but is good encouragement for the authors to keep the project going”.

I’d like to propose the hashtag #opensourcethanks – it would be great to see the Twitter search for this hashtag fill up with thankyous :)

If you’re benefitting from an open source project, take a minute to send a thankyou Tweet.
