After this week's big security flub at AOL, the answer to the privacy question is a lot less clear. Tune in to a discussion between Elinor Mills, Declan McCullagh and Charlie Cooper on this week's edition of the CNET News.com Reporters' Roundtable.
Anyone surfing the Web on Wednesday probably noticed a lot of their favorite sites looked a little different. Wikipedia, Google, and Amazon, among others, all took steps to protest two antipiracy bills that Congress is considering. The bills are known as SOPA and PIPA. Internet companies say that if passed the bills would threaten the "openness" of the Web. CNET's Kara Tsuboi reports.

In 1986, on a San Francisco beach, about 20 participants got together to burn an 8-foot structure of a man, and thus was born Burning Man. Twenty years later, the festival, which now takes place in the northern Nevada desert, is expected to attract some 35,000 people when it takes place next week. For some reason, Burning Man has occupied a special place in the hearts of techies. Join CNET News.com Charlie Cooper as he looks at why with Burning Man veterans Jennifer Guevin, Elinor Mills and Declan McCullagh during this week's edition of the CNET News.com Reporters' roundtable.\r\n\r\n
