Pretty much informative and uncluttered UI for flight planning: http://google.com/flights
 
Get a bird's-eye view of your next adventure with the updated Flight Search. It’s now much easier to browse different destinations and choose the right one for your next trip. You can even zoom in and out of locations all around the world to see potential destinations and price fluctuations by month in the expanded map view: goo.gl/hLjNc7.

Beautiful abstract art?

Rather this is a graphical representation of the frequency of four digit PIN codes. On the x-axes we have the first two PIN digits from 00.. to 99.., on the y-axes we have the last two digits from ..00 to ..99. Popular PIN codes include the yellow diagonal, PIN codes of the form XYXY, and even more bright XXXX. The vertical yellow line are PIN codes marking a year, mostly between the years 1930-2010. The yellow blob on the lower left are US formatted calendar days from 01/01 to 12/31 (you can even see how many days each month has). Also singleton yellow dots can be explained.

Anyway, it is beautiful, in my opinion.

Software testing can be daunting, time-consuming, and prone to human error. Automated testing techniques, such as model checking or symbolic execution, promise to alleviate the testing effort and spot more programming errors. Alas, at the moment, such techniques face several challenges in getting mainstream adoption.

One such challenge is the difficulty of producing automated testing engines for dynamic interpreted languages, such as Python or Ruby, which are getting increasingly popular among web developers and system integrators.

To this end, I'm happy to share our latest research result, a recipe and system -- Chef --  for turning vanilla interpreter implementations into correct and complete symbolic execution engines. With only a fraction of the effort needed to build such an engine from scratch, we built using Chef symbolic execution engines for Python and Lua, which we used to find bugs and obtain code coverage in popular library packages.

Read more about Chef in our upcoming ASPLOS'14 paper, also available at http://dslab.epfl.ch/pubs/chef.pdf?attredirects=0

My original plan was to go up on a mountain to try out my new snow chains. But close to the summit, the road became more difficult and I had to turn back. Fortunately, the cloud blanket was dissipating during my descent, and I got the chance to shoot these photos.

Cool! Hints for Computer System Design is one of the handful of papers that really influenced my thinking, I used to read it every year or two.

An incredible advance for science. Amazing.
A genetic disease has been cured in living, adult animals for the first time using a revolutionary genome-editing technique that can make the smallest changes to the vast database of the DNA molecule with pinpoint accuracy.

It is simply mind-boggling how such a complex microscopic machine (a) is made possible by the laws of physics and (b) resulted naturally in the process of evolution...
 
This is an animation of DNA replication by DNA polymerase and accurately shows the function of all its subunits.

A fantastic radio-controlled model of an Airbus A380 with a 5.3m wing-span.

The sales guy talked us into buying an expensive perfume, and he put in the box a different, cheaper one. Since this was meant to be a present, we only realized it after we left Doha... You should stay away from this shop.

The food is fresh and tasty, and you get everything you'd expect from a Vapiano. The prices are adjusted to the typical Swiss restaurant ranges, so you can expect to get a meal for about 20 - 25 CHF/person. It is great the place is open 7 days a week, so you can count on it whenever you feel hungry :)

The pastas and pizzas are very good. The decor is quite original: the walls are all drawn on graffiti style using markers.
