This is the 14-21 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 perceived in online  
media.

Notably this week:

- 2800 stories about W3C on Twitter in 7 days.
- 10.2K mentions of W3C in 7 days with a peak on 17-Dec (5590 mentions)  
that matches the advancement of HTML5 to Candidate Recommendation.
- 69.2K mentions of HTML5 in 7 days, peak of 23808 on the day we announced  
HTML5 CR.
- net increase of 523 Twitter followers in 7 days, now 51442 followers.
- 30 posts that dlvr.it posted to StatusNet, Twitter and Facebook between  
Dec 11 - Dec 18 got 33.4K clicks (+35%), delivered to 59.2K connections
