Or maybe Gratipay ( (formerly known as “gittip") which is 
based on continuous weekly payments – ongoing contributions for ongoing work – 
rather than payment per creation.  

Also, unlike most of these deals, Gratipay does not take a percentage off the 
top of each transaction.  Gratipay is itself funded on Gratipay.  How’s that 
for "eating your own dog food"?

It looks like they are going through a big transition that involves a new 
approach organized around funding teams (rather than individuals) that offer 
what they’re calling “open work”.  It’s an intriguing and unconventional 
approach… FWIW.
