Hey @apm, thanks for running that panel! It was great, and I loved the format.
From Cake's perspective, a panel can be many things. A panel can be an interview, it can be a presentation, it can be a back-and-forth discussion between experts, and so on. As you know we're also working hard on a feature that will allow panels to accept moderated questions from readers. There are so many possibilities! But they're all panels.
In fact, when we originally envisioned panels, we envisioned what you're calling a "workshop": a lively discussion between people who are passionate or knowledgeable about a topic. 🙂
I believe it was William Shakespeare who said, "A panel, by any other name, would still be sweet". Or something along those lines. 😉
