AUSTIN, Texas - Edward Snowden brought no bombshells when he arrived to an excited round of applause Monday, his stubbled face relaxed as it was beamed in from across the continents for a "virtual conversation" about the vulnerability of personal data. His presence was event enough. Public appearances by the former National Security Agency contractor and U.S. exile are rare, and this one was beamed in from an undisclosed location in Russia via several online proxies for his own security, a bit of technological cloak-and-dagger that could only add to his mystique for the three roomfuls of international tech specialists struggling to hear his words in video that was choppy and often inaudible.

Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Biebers. In video clips from a deposition taken last Thursday in Miami, Justin Bieber at 20 looks like little more than a petulant child - and attention to the clips might be getting under the singer's skin. "Love how some people love to twist and justify the horrible action of others. We all have a right to defend ourselves and feel harassed," he tweeted Monday, hours after the tapes started making the rounds.

If anyone or anything could use a little love right about now, it's bitcoin.  The poor, beleaguered virtual currency has had a rough go of it lately. There was the collapse of Mt. Gox, once the largest bitcoin exchange, and the loss of a few hundred million dollars worth of bitcoin. There were charges of money laundering related to another bitcoin exchange. And of course, last week, there was the Newsweek story that may or may not have unveiled the identity of the creator of bitcoin.  STORY: Will the real creator of bitcoin please stand up?

A video posted to YouTube begins with scores of students onstage, some in headdresses and others holding what appear to be pompoms, swaying to the right and left before jumping up and down and dancing in place. That's when the stage at an Anaheim high school collapsed Saturday night, injuring about two dozen students. Some suffered broken bones, and most of the other injuries were minor to moderate, officials said. Still, questions remain about why the stage collapsed and whether anyone knew about a weight limit or other issues with the structure.

The rapper Future is known for his liberal use of Auto-Tune, but now he's got another charmingly low-rent bit of technology to share. The Atlanta rapper-singer has a great new single in "Move That Dope," which features guest turns from Pharrell Williams, Pusha T and Cameo. To accompany it, he posted an addictive new video game that's a slightly more menacing version of vintage Nintendo titles. " Move That Doh " (a more family-friendly version of the title) sports 8-bit graphics straight out of the '80s heyday of cocaine trafficking.
