This is the 23-30 January 2015 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.
This is the last edition for a while. I hope you have all learned useful information via this digest.
