A creative network is a small group of no more than a dozen people who collaborate closely and share many values. They stay small to keep these values undisputed (saving much hassle and leading to a very coherent set of glossary meanings and probably better schema if they are oh say the Consumerium developers), and to keep working through consensus alone, without a lot of process. Good creative work rarely comes from a big mob!
These networks are smaller than a contact network, social network or power network and they tend to get the most done, and be the most fair to people within their circle. Above a dozen people, politics as usual and groupthink apply, and there may be a self-interested fork or two, or many.
