This is the 12-19 October 2012 edition of a "Weekly digest of W3C news and  
trends" that the W3C Communications Team prepares for the W3C Membership  
and public-w3c-digest mailing list (publicly archived [1]) and sends  
separately. This digest aggregates information about W3C from online  
media, a snapshot of how W3C and its work is apprehended as viewed from  
online media.

Notable activity last week includes:

  - 1200 stories about W3C on Twitter, 2600 mentions of W3C.
  - net increase of 545 Twitter followers.
  - slightly more Twitter followers despite 3 times less mentions.
  - 26 posts that dlvr.it posted to StatusNet, Twitter and Facebook between  
Oct 9-16 got 31.6K clicks, delivered to 54.6K connections.


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