This is the 25 January - 1 February 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 :

- over 600 stories about W3C on Twitter in 7 days.
- over 1800 mentions of W3C in 7 days, with a peak on 31 Jan (624  
mentions) matching W3Conf 2013 promotion from several sources.
- With 53866 Twitter followers, net increase of 500 followers in the past  
week.

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