This is the 17-24 January 2014 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.

W3C may be perceived (but doesn’t seem to be yet) as in the critical path of Google fixing a security bug. The W3C Team is in contact with Google. In fact, the Chrome implementation is that of a W3C Community Group final report. Community Groups are proposed and run by the community. Although W3C hosts these conversations, the groups do not necessarily represent the views of the W3C Membership or staff.
