[new] Structure or people? (Avg. Score: none / Raters: 0) (#2)

I'm curious as to what you see as being more important to the quality of communication - does it depend more on the structure (e.g. the flat, simple structure of a newsgroup) or more on the people involved and the extent to which they share a common goal?
Also, how much personal communication is needed for people to feel comfortable sharing thoughts and reflections, and when does personal communication affect the quality of the discussion by shifting the noise/content ratio?
Based only on my experience of observing and participating (to varying degrees) in different types of online communication structures over about ten years, I don't believe there is ever one ideal solution, but I am interested in what other people see as the most important criteria for determining which structures will best serve to reach an agreed goal and how much depends more on the people involved.
