While you were sleeping, the Internet never stopped. And it's amazing what the Internet comes up with.

Check out what people are tweeting, sharing and talking about.

White House outs CIA official by mistake

The White House accidentally revealed the name of the CIA's top official in Afghanistan in an email to some 6,000 journalists.

The person was included on a list of people attending a military briefing for President Barrack Obama during his surprise visit to Afghanistan on Sunday.

It's common for these lists to be given to the media, but most CIA officers names are withheld to protect them and allow them to work secretly.

It was first reported by the Washington Post. The White House recognized the mistake and quickly issued a revised list – however the damage was done.

Given the potentially dangerous nature of the situation, several news outlets have not broadcast or published online the name of the official.

But the question remains: what does this slip-up mean for the CIA officer's career?

Counter-terrorism scholar and analyst Daveed Gartenstein-Ross posted on Twitter, "If the outing of this CIA station chief was accidental, someone should be fired. If it was intentional, someone should be prosecuted."

In the most recent case before this one, the Bush administration leaked the name of former CIA officer Valerie Plame to a journalist in 2003.

Plame tweeted on Monday that the White House's mistake this past weekend is "astonishing."

Don't Stop Believin': Steve Perry returns to the stage

Steve Perry, the former frontman of the classic rock group Journey, has the Internet buzzing after he stepped out of the shadows for a surprise performance.

The notoriously reclusive rock singer joined indie-rock band the Eels on stage in St. Paul, Minnesota.

According to Yahoo's Music Blog, Perry first sang one of the Eels' songs with them but went on to sing a number of Journey classics, including "Open Arms" and "Lovin' Touchin' Squeezin'."

Perry hasn't performed solo since 1995, and his last performance with Journey was 23 years ago.

Fans in the theater joyously sang along and some posted video of the performance on YouTube.

Anonymous person hiding money around San Fran

An anonymous -- and seemingly very rich person -- is dropping off sums of money around San Francisco and then tweeting hints about the location.

It's an anonymous social experiment for good called "Hidden Cash."

Using the twitter handle @HiddenCash, this anonymous person offers clues as to where the money inside a white envelope is hiding.

The person behind Hidden Cash told the Huffington Post that the project will soon expand to other cities. The donor said they "want to start a nationwide movement" around this anonymous charitable giving.
