e-codices - Virtual Manuscript Library of Switzerland

Now the Stiftsbibliothek is part of a network for digitizing medieval manuscripts called the "Virtual Manuscript Library of Switzerland".  Spiegel Online

"What started as a pilot project in 2005 grew sharply last year, when the Saint Gallen project was incorporated into a program to digitize all of Switzerland's roughly 7,000 medieval manuscripts"

Mind Hygiene for All - a Concept Map<http://www.acm.org/ubiquity/>

Maintaining mental sharpness and clarity is important to most everyone, and doing so is valuable for maintaining our professional edge.  But we are under assault from many directions with challenges that can interfere with mental sharpness.  Some of the challenges are familiar; others hide in the background.   What are these challenges and what can we do about them?

Goutam Saha, has put together a very concise summary of everything contributing to mental hygiene, including the challenges and actions to meet them.   He expresses this with mind maps, which themselves contribute to mental clarity.
