This is the 16-23 November 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])  
[sent separately]. This digest aggregates information about W3C from  
online media, a snapshot of how W3C and its work is apprehended in online  
media.

It was a quiet week both in terms of Press coverage and social media  
trends.

Notably this week:

- 1500 stories about W3C on Twitter in 7 days.
- 2200 mentions of W3C in 7 days.
- net increase of 420 Twitter followers in 7 days.
- 13 posts that dlvr.it posted to StatusNet, Twitter and Facebook between  
Nov 13-20 got 29K clicks, delivered to 57K connections.


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