This posting of an annotated bibliography on gesture user interfaces, on-line character recognition (a.k.a. dynamic character recognition, a.k.a. pen and touch computing), both hardware and software, has been a continuing work-in-progress since the 1980s. It includes information on related application topics, such as digital rights management (DRM). I am posting it as a service to those with interest in the field. It may also be of special interest to anyone investigating any of the areas of digitizer tablets, touchscreens, character recognition, touch/gesture user interfaces, multi-touch computing, touch and proximity sensors, augmented reality, haptics, context-dependent intrepretation of user input, and applications including the same. It covers the time period from approximately 1891 (first electronic tablet) through 1914 (first gesture/handwriting-recognition input system) to the present day.

"A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, ..."    
                                                                 
  "... adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines.  
   With consistency a great soul has simply nothing to do.       
   He may as well concern himself with his shadow on the wall.   
   Speak what you think now in hard words,                       
   and to-morrow speak what to-morrow thinks in hard words again,
   though it contradict every thing you said to-day."            
                                                                 
"Ah, so you shall be sure to be misunderstood!"                  
                                                                 
  "Is it so bad, then, to be misunderstood?                      
   Pythagoras was misunderstood, and Socrates, and Jesus,        
   and Luther, and Copernicus, and Galileo, and Newton,          
   and every pure and wise spirit that ever took flesh.          
   To be great is to be misunderstood."

Politische Wahrheit #1:

Es ist viel leichter,
jemanden von der Notwendigkeit einer Sache zu überzeugen,
wenn die Grüde die man gibt 
seinen schon bestehenden Vorurteilen entsprechen.
