This is the 26 October - 6 November 2012 edition of a "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])  
[sent 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.

Like this edition, the next digest will span ten days; I will compile it  
on Friday, 16 November.

Notably this week:

- 1600 stories about W3C on Twitter in 7 days.
- 4000 mentions of W3C in 10 days.
- Peak of >600 Twitter mentions last Wednesday, the day we held our annual  
Technical Plenary, in the middle of TPAC2012 [2].
- net increase of 810+ Twitter followers in 10 days.
- 24 posts that dlvr.it posted to StatusNet, Twitter and Facebook between  
Oct 23 - Oct 30 got 36K clicks (+28.8%), delivered to 55.6K connections.
