This is the 31 January – 7 February 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.
W3C and HTML5 buzz in Twitter
em>[What was tweeted frequently, or caught my attention. Most recent first (popularity is flagged with a figure —number of times the same URIs or tweet was quoted/RTed.)]

My pick, a couple tweets in the wake of Microsoft naming CEO Satya Nadella Monday:
(38)html5: “No @satyanadella, you don’t have the best platform to change the world. We do. @w3c platform.html5.org” (A Twitter handle not operated by the W3C Comm Team)
This is in response to a Microsoft video, Satya Nadella: His first interview as CEO of Microsoft (fast-forward to 4:28).
(458)Satya Nadella: “HTML5 – what fun!” (A tweet from 7 June 2010)
Nadella hadn’t tweeted between July 2010 and 5 February 2014. And between Feb 2009 and July 2010, he tweeted 25 times. He sent his first tweet as MS CEO on 5 Feb: “first commitment as CEO…i won’t wait 4 years between tweets!”.
