Quadratic programming

Jason Booth, in a comment to Damion Schubert's "You Don’t Want Realistic A.I." post, points to the combinatory approach to AI in the early Mario Brothers games.
This moves you very quickly towards an n^2 model of content instead of an n++. This is a desirable place for an MMO developer to be in, because you simply cannot produce enough content in the n++ model.
This is one of the reasons why I find Dramatica so useful: it really supports the quadratic approach. It takes more skills to create n^2 content, but to me, it's the only viable strategy anyway,
