This week at W3C: W3C TAG Nominations, successful 2013 #html5j conference, TimBL at #UNRightsAt20, etc.
This is the 29 November - 6 December 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.
