II. History of the Mentifex MindForth AI project.
An Amazon Kindle e-book, The Art of the Meme, is actually a history of the Mentifex AI project.

IV. Resources which may be regarded as AI4U supplements.
The Google Code MindForth project contains wiki-pages which document new mind-modules that were not yet in existence when AI4U was first published by iUniverse.com in 2002. Since the original AI4U had thirty-four chapters describing the full set of thirty-four mind-modules then in existence, each new wiki-page for a new mind-module may be regarded as the equivalent of a new chapter for AI4U.
V. AI software changes which will necessitate AI4U revision.
Towards the end of the year 2014, the various Mentifex AI Minds in English, German and Russian are poised on the brink of major modifications to accommodate a fundamental shift in the underlying Cognitive Architecture of the AI Minds. Each AI Mind already incorporates the shift, because the shift has occurred in the course of Mentifex AI evolution. What still needs to be done is the simplification of the AI software to remove quasi-junk-DNA code which does not interfere in the AI functionality but which obfuscates the straightforward operation of each AI Mind.
The fundamental shift in the AI has to do with the operation of spreading activation.
