Visualizing Regular Expressions

Visualizing Regular Expressions.

i found this reAnimator tool via alpha, for visualizing how regular expression engines use finite-state automata to match regular regular expression patterns against text. it's really cool and the explanation was made in openlazzlo. The regular expression is compiled into a nondeterministic finite-state automaton.
i like the a/ab/abc/abcd example and the a*b/b*a examples the best. check it out. it's actually quite fun to visualize. i wonder if you could build on this theory to expand it into a blog platform and use it to link words and tag items, link posts, and advertizing.


This is a sildeshow showing the photos from mark eley's ride in the gumball rally.

mark eley from eley kishimoto, a designer from london, is off to drive the gumball rally! this time their race will take them even on a plane to china! i was honored to help mark set up his phone so that he could flickr his travels and blog on diane pernet's blog about it all. i cant wait till the adventure starts! GO MARK!

my first art exhibition was in paris, france in a gallerie called ARTCORE. i was invited to join the art posthume movement started by artus, eduard, alexi, and daniel. it was the launch of my NEW KIND OF SUPERMODEL concept. then art posthume printed a book, where contributed 4 pages, one of which was with huna philosophy inside. now the new show of art posthume is going to launch on the 4th of may in paris, and i will have 2 pages hanging in the gallerie of agnes b. if you are in town, please check it out. at least i get to be back from finland and can be at the launch!


i think i am going to contribute this page here, and i am going to make a political commentary about a statement that i heard regarding my credibility as a buisness woman. or maybe i will use this paper that artus wrote to me when he was really pissed off at how i was becoming very corporate.
