Great article. I especially liked the accompanying examples that supported your points "Think TurboTax form filing logic."

Yes Michael, Task-Centered Design seems to be the same thing as Inductive User Interface Design. Why they are calling it that I don't know? To be trendy? To add a new emphasis? Who knows.

It seems they are mixing Progressive Disclosure http://experiencedynamics.blogs.com/site_search_usability/2004/03/progressive_dis.html

...with Task Centered Design in terms of their "new" foundations to this IUI approach.

Thanks for sharing- Frank

Is task-centered design the same as applying UCD to make an inductive user interface (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms997506.aspx)?
