This is the 19-26 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.

Notably this week:

- 700 stories about W3C on Twitter, 1600 mentions of W3C.
- Peak of >400 Twitter mention yesterday as our Webmaster, Denis,  
published 16 specs.
- net increase of 500 Twitter followers.
- 18 posts that dlvr.it posted to StatusNet, Twitter and Facebook between  
Oct 16-23 got 33.3K clicks, delivered to 55.1K connections.

A moratorium on Spec publications kicks in next week as the W3C holds its  
annual Technical Plenary / Advisory Committee Meetings Week, in Lyon.

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



W3C-related Twitter buzz
------------------------
[Things that were tweeted frequently, things that caught my attention, etc.
  Most *recent* first (popularity is flagged with the figure between  
parenthesis —that is the number of times the same URIs or tweet was  
quoted/RTed.]


* (44) Many tweets on the Push API Working Draft that Webapps published  
last week, and a few articles too.
<http://www.w3.org/TR/2012/WD-push-api-20121018/>

* (26) eBooks: Great Expectations - A W3C Workshop on Electronic Books and  
Open Web Platform - 15-16 February 2013
<http://www.w3.org/2012/08/electronic-books/>

* (>200) Bowser – The World’s First WebRTC-Enabled Mobile Browser
<https://labs.ericsson.com/blog/bowser-the-world-s-first-webrtc-enabled-mobile-browser>

* (350) The State of Mobile HTML5 Game Development
<http://www.html5gamedevelopment.org/StateofHTML5GameDevelopment/>
(after load, move arrows, little man jumps and cycles through living  
slides on HTML5 mobile games dev)

* (222) Javascript Territory - Jster Javascript Catalog
<http://jster.net/>
A "community-driven catalog" of HTML5/JS libraries. It currently lists  
more than 750 libraries. (Of which probably 50 or so are very widely used  
at all, but still it shows how much developer activity is going on in this  
area).



W3C in the Press (or some blogs)
--------------------------------

Highlight:
  * WebRTC (Ericsson’s Bowser) (6 articles)
