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 are not defeated until you admit defeat.
... therefore, don't!"
General George C. Patton
"Auch eine schädliche Wahrheit ist nützlich, weil sie nur        
 Augenblicke schädlich sein kann und alsdann zu andern Wahrheiten
 führt, die immer nützlich und sehr nützlich werden müssen,      
 und umgekehrt ist ein nützlicher Irrtum schädlich, weil er es   
 nur augenblicklich nützlich sein kann und in andre Irrtümer     
 verleitet, die immer schädlicher werden."
