This is the 1-5 July 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 700 stories about W3C on Twitter in the past week.
- over 1500 mentions of W3C in past week.
- With 62913 Twitter followers, net increase of nearly 2.4K followers  
since 31 May.
- 19 posts that dlvr.it posted between Jun 23 - Jun 30 got 22K clicks with  
a potential reach to 75.3K connections.
- Peaks on 27-Jun (616 mentions) and 2-Jul (338 mentions) for top stories  
“eject DRM and You Risk Walling Off Parts of the Web, Says W3C Chief -

Walled Off, We Need To Wall It Off Ourselves | Techdirt” [2].

I also noted a funny story which made it to the top for 3 days in a row,  
the previous weekend:
“I feel bad for the W3C. For years we begged for gradients, so they gave  
us gradients. So what do we do? FLATTEN ALL THE THINGS.”

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