This is the 4-11 January 2013 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:

- 1500 stories about W3C on Twitter in 7 days.
- over 2700 mentions of W3C in 7 days, with two peaks on 8 Jan (547  
mentions) and 9 Jan (650 mentions). The top stories are respectively Bruce  
Lawson’s interview of Ian Hickson, and XPath 3.0, XQuery 3.0, XQueryX 3.0  
published as Candidate Recommendations.
- With 52418 Twitter followers, net increase of 982 followers in the past  
3 weeks (348 in the past week).
- 13 posts that dlvr.it posted to StatusNet, Twitter and Facebook between  
Jan 02 and Jan 09 got 32.4K clicks, delivered to 60.4K connections.

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