Optimum Creative Networks

I’ve been trying to think of ways to test or experiment on creative networks in order to discover the optimum network topology to enhance creativity. So far I’ve borrowed two metaphors from technology to describe creative networks: the network topology model (star, mesh, ring) and the internet business model (many to many, few to many, etc)

Is it possible to use the conclusions of computer networking studies to help answer this question?
