The method builds upon existing participatory design techniques to propose a way of transcending the participants? bias and preconceived notions of existing technologies and encourage them to postulate future forms and uses of technology, by emphasising equally on technologies and activities. Four pilot workshops are reported. </ABSTRACT><NOTES>Published by Shaker Publishing</NOTES></RECORD></RECORDS></XML>
