We investigate the role of users through three case studies from the NEETs public service design, PalCom pervasive computing and ‘Running Stitch’ participatory art, chosen to illustrate a broad range of methodological approaches and applications. The contribution of this chapter is to explore the proposition that thinking of users as make-shift and processual entities, rather than as preconstituted figures that actually exist in the ‘real’ world provides a method of integrating concepts of user, utility and users with dynamic accounts of design.
