"[...] the computer as literary agent ultimately points beyond narrative and toward ergotic modes -- dialogic forms of improvisation and free play between the cyborgs that today's literate computer users (and their programs) have become. What we need in order to achieve this is not an automated playwright or narrator but simulated worlds with emergent intrigants, interesting enough to make real people want to spend time and creative energy there."
