Abstract

This chapter reflects critically upon how a substantial body of writings in technology studies and user-oriented computing have sought to conceptualize design-and their tacit and explicit presumptions about what is wrong with technology design/development processes as currently practised.

Keywords: innovation, design analysis, ICT, technology user-centred users
