The article discusses the user's appropriation of their computers as artefacts. The general trend in developing models concerning human behavior is moving from normative models of rational behavior, through efforts to model the observed less rational behavior. These developments constitute a change from normative models towards descriptive models and further towards 'formative' models that are characterized as approaches, where 'the workers finish the design'.
