This is the first edition of a "Weekly digest of W3C news and trends"  
prepared by the W3C Communications Team for the W3C Membership and  
public-w3c-digest mailing list (publicly archived  
<http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-w3c-digest/>).

The "Weekly digest of W3C news and trends" aggregates information about  
W3C from online media, a snapshot of how W3C and its work is apprehended  
outwardly.

The public-w3c-digest list is read only. We welcome your feedback. If you  
wish to send a message to the W3C Communications Team, please write to  
w3t-pr@w3.org.


This edition spans 21-28 September 2012.

Notable activity last week includes:
  - more than 25 press articles about the proposed HTML5 spec Plan for 2014,
  - a gross increase of 450+ Twitter followers,
  - 23 posts to StatusNet, Twitter and Facebook between Sep 17 and Sep 24  
(35K clicks, delivered to 53K connections).

Below is the compilation of what I harvested monitoring the  
(micro)blogosphere and press.
