    Awesome Video Smiley. Great to learn about Simon and other cool historic devices. Watching this video, makes you wonder, why did Microsoft abandon Courier project. It would have been revolutionary.

    I thought the same thing. I was amazed to see the things the industry was doing with touch in the 70s. We should be much farther along than we are.

    Question to Bill Buxton: Any good reading material/pointers on the bimanual asymmetric action stuff? Smiley

    @ShinNoNoir:  Yes.  A major source of inspiration for me is the work of my good friend Yves Guiard and this paper which laid the foundation for what I discussed in this talk:
    Guiard, Yves (1987)  Asymmetric Division of Labor in Human Skilled Bimanual Action:   The Kinematic Chain as a Model.  Slightly edited version of an article originally published in Journal of Motor Behavior, 1987, 19, 486-517  http://cogprints.org/625/1/jmb_87.html
    I duplicate the hand writing example in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NcdrfacG_y4
    There is also a draft chapter on bi-manual input co-written with Yves and another colleague, Abi Sellen.  It is from an in-progress book that I am doing on human input to digital systems. You can find a draft of the book here:
    http://www.billbuxton.com/inputManuscript.html
    and the specific chapter on bi-manual input here:
    http://www.billbuxton.com/input11.2H.pdf
    Finally, much of the work around bi-manual input  that I have been involved in is listed here:
    http://www.billbuxton.com/papers.html#anchor1442822
    Sorry if this is waaay too much information.  But I figured that it was better to err on the side of inclusiveness, and at the same time, prioritize things.  Yves paper -  the first one listed - may be a bit of a slog if you are not used to reading the psych literature.  But it is worth it.
    Thanks for asking.

    Does anybody know (maybe Bill himself ;), what book Bill is referring to, when he was talking about errors being a good thing. It was a book he was reading at the time he gave the talk.
