A few minor nitpicks:

* "In just a month, W3C and Adobe" -> remove comma? There's a lot of commas here in a short space of time, so it reads a little bit awkwardly. Removing this one would cut down on the awkwardness.
* Web Platform -> WebPlatform.org?

* "The opening session, delivered by Mozilla's Janet Swisher and W3C's Doug Schepers, will feature Web Platform Docs and community involvement. Other speakers include CJ Gammon, Lea Verou, and Alexis Deveria, all of whom have contributed to WebPlatform.org. The closing keynote is by Eric Meyer, and the browser panel will include a developer and designer from the audience [http://www.w3.org/QA/2013/01/join_us_at_w3conf.html], to represent the view from the trenches."

* All of this reads a bit flat - I would try to sex it up a bit by giving away some more details of what subjects the talks cover, and say why these things are exciting. For example, what can a design and developer from the tranches add to a browser wars type panel, which usually covers lot of high level stuff that only browser vendor people would know about, probably. I'd also break it up into bullet points so it is easier to digest each item.

* Can you say a bit more about the conference in general, why it's cool? Add a bit to "W3Conf [http://www.w3.org/conf/], W3C's conference for developers and designers, is coming up on February 21-22 at the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco."

* You kind of assume that everyone knows what a Doc Sprint is - say a bit more in the Doc Sprint paragraph about what it is, and what awesome things we'll achieve at that event. Mention there that it's free to attend - another great value add to the already awesome conference.
