"It is important to remember that any abstract story system ultimately refers to the sorrows and pleasures of human life and that the story of any event depends heavily on who is doing the telling. A storytelling system that further calcifies the distortions of stereotypical thinking would be as destructive as the most bigoted and bloodthirsty bard. We humans already do enough mechanical thinking without enlisting machines to help us."
— Janet H. Murray, Hamlet on the Holodeck: The Future of Narrative in Cyberspace (info)
