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.

You cannot heal the healthy,                           
    only the sick.                                     
You cannot persuade those who agree with you,          
    only those who see your position as wrong.         
You cannot reconcile with those you know in fellowship,
    only with those from whom you are estranged.       
You cannot forgive those who have done good,           
    only those who have done bad.                      
You cannot not make peace with your friends,           
    only with your enemies.

 nicht halb leer.  Aber die meisten von denen haben ein Glas, das
 wesentlich grösser ist als deins oder meins. Vor allem ist      
 wichtig, dass alle genug Wasser zu trinken haben, egal wie gross
 ihre Gläser sind."
