Strange premise from Jon Ellwood, right? He explains:

I will acknowledge that CodePen and Copilot are two different products, and it might seem odd to be comparing the two – but the commonality for me is that my budget only allows for one of them to get my money each month.

While Copilot could give me code, it never sparked any ideas. It could suggest ways to accomplish what I thought I wanted – but on many an occasion, CodePen has taken a spark of an idea and ignited it into a full-fledged feature.

Thanks for the support, Jon! And speaking of which:

… if I am going to give money to a company and thereby publicly support them.. CodePen is what, 10-15 people? Maybe more, maybe less.

It’s less! Straight up, that support helps us run CodePen and fuel it’s future.
