This is the 23-30 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.

Notably this week:

- 1600 stories about W3C on Twitter in 7 days.
- 3000 mentions of W3C in 7 days with peaks on 27 and 28 November (550 +  
700 mentions) that match 1) objection to Microdata CR, and 2) appointment  
of Peter Swire as co-chair of the Tracking Protection WG.
- reached 50K Twitter followers threshold.
- net increase of 436 Twitter followers in 7 days.
- 8 posts that dlvr.it posted to StatusNet, Twitter and Facebook between  
Nov 19-26 got 32K clicks (+28%), delivered to 57.7K connections.


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