This is the 7-14 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:

- 1500 stories about W3C on Twitter in 7 days.
- 3100 mentions of W3C in 7 days with a peak yesterday (680 mentions) that  
matches the advancement of WOFF 1.0 to W3C Recommendation.
- net increase of 401 Twitter followers in 7 days, now 50934 followers.
- 20 posts that dlvr.it posted to StatusNet, Twitter and Facebook between  
Dec 04 - Dec 11 got 29K clicks (+16%), delivered to 58.6K connections  
(+0.7%).

Below is the compilation of what I harvested monitoring the  
(micro)blogosphere and press. The social media part of this digest is made  
of many pieces (including Spec publications, TAG election), while the  
press part is populated only with 3 articles.
