I was traveling last week and unable to send the 1-8 March digest. This is  
the 8-15 March 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 :

- 1300 stories about W3C on Twitter in 7 days.
- over 3300 mentions of W3C in 7 days, with 14 Mar (1830 mentions).
- 17 posts that dlvr.it posted between Mar 03 - Mar 10 got 29.2K clicks  
and reached 66K connections.

- With 56886 Twitter followers, net increase of 1009 followers in the past  
2 weeks.


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