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.

"I halve a spelling checker:         
    it came with my pea see.         
 It planely marques four my revue    
    miss steaks eye cannot sea.      
 I've run this poem threw it:        
    I'm sure your pleased two no     
 Its letter perfect inn it's weigh --
    My checker tolled me sew!"       
Wer waren wir,                                          
            als wir noch so waren wie wir damals waren? 
Was wären wir geworden,                                 
            wenn wir nicht das wären das wir jetzt sind?
