Groups vs Networks in CCK11

This is a repost in order to get picked up by the cck11 gRSShopper system and start a discussion topic there.

I am puzzled by Stephen’s apparent preference for the “stability” of flatter mesh-style networks over the kind of rapid propagation of change (“cascade” phenomena) that is facilitated by a power law distribution of connectivity.

I am tempted to ask why cascades of new ideas are not to be encouraged and where the line should be drawn between “stability” and “stagnation”. Any comments here (or links to discussions elsewhere) to help with these issues would be welcome.
