Abstract

The design of technical product is often focused in the development of that particular artefact. However, when we introduce new technology we don’t simply replace old technology with new, but change many things in the whole context of use. With the help of familiar examples from our everyday life we illustrate how far-reaching tiny-looking technological changes may be. Finally, we propose a design model which combines the traditional user-centred design cycle with broader view. The premise of the proposed model is that when designing information technology we fundamentally design information society.
