This week at W3C: Encrypted Video and the Open Web, Touch Events is a W3C Standard, Auto industry turning to HTML5, etc.

This is the 4 – 11 October 2013 edition of a “weekly digest of W3C news and trends” that I prepare for the W3C Membership and public-w3c-digest mailing list (publicly archived). This digest aggregates information about W3C and W3C technology from online media —a snapshot of how W3C and its work is perceived in online media. You may tweet your demos and cool dev/design stuff to @koalie, or write me e-mail. If you have suggestions for improvement, please leave a comment.
