I think in general a panel discussion only makes sense (1) if there
are people on stage that have interesting insights/ideas for others to
listen to, and (2) if they have a topic that they can actually discuss
with each other about, and (3) a good moderator who keeps them inline.
Otherwise the danger is high that it's just unconnected statements,
followed by an Q&A in which half of the audience is getting bored,
while the others just wait to get the word to give long statements.
(At least that's my rather cynical view on most panel discussions.)
I don't quite think that such a setup with experts on stage, and an
audience passively listening fits the concept of barn camp.
Having said that....
How about an Open Fishbowl conversation?
On a topic that we decide together at the beginning of BarnCamp, based
on the issues that are relevant to the people that are there?
