Yes, it is. The article is about activity-centered design:
DN> Activity-Centered Design (ACD) is actually very much like
DN> Human-Centered Design (HCD). Many of the best attributes of HCD
DN> carry over.
DN> To the Human-Centered Design community, the tool should be

DN> Design, the tool is the way.
DN> My precepts here are themselves dangerous. We dare not let the

DN> conventional wisdom: most lack the deep understanding of the
DN> activity coupled with a clear conceptual model.
