If you are a talented interactive web designer/developer, game designer/developer, traditional programmer with a creative bent, or someone who who is thinking about working with technology in the future as a programmer or designer, I urge you to consider thinking about designing/developing multi-touch applications in the near future.
In my opinion, there will be a need for multi-touch web applications as well as for multi-touch education and collaboration applications for the SMART Table, Microsoft's Surface, multi-touch tablets like the rumored iTablet from Apple, and the multi-touch laptops and all-in-ones (Dell, HP, etc.).
Below are direct links to some of my blog posts related to multi-touch applications and screens. If you are fairly new to multi-touch, I'm sure that looking through some of my blog posts will be helpful. All of the posts have links to resources, and most have photos and video clips of multi-touch in action.
If you are new to this blog, I have a great deal of information, links, photos, and video clips of various multi-touch screens and applications. The best way to find the stuff is to enter in a keyword in the search box for this blog: multitouch, touch screen, gesture, multi-touch, etc. on this blog.
Also do a search on my other blog: The World Is My Interface http://tshwi.blogspot.com
