This is the 30 November - 7 December 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:

- 1400 stories about W3C on Twitter in 7 days.
- 2300 mentions of W3C in 7 days with a peak yesterday (400+ mentions)  
that match 1) Marcos Cáceres’ blog post about why he’s running for the TAG  
election, 2) a short blog post reminder by Daniel Glazman of the 10  
December deadline to submit a position paper for the W3C Workshop on  
Electronic Books and the Open Web Platform.
- net increase of 400 Twitter followers in 7 days, now 50533 followers.
- 23 posts that dlvr.it posted to StatusNet, Twitter and Facebook between  
Nov 27 - Dec 04 got 30.6K clicks (+29%), delivered to 58.2K connections  
(+0.8%).


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