Can I just say that “Berlin Council” is not a great name.
Micah Zoltu @MicahZoltu 02:05
So many people hating on the name of this thing.

Should be”Berlin Inclusion”. I can see the headlines now. “Magicians’s Council meets at Berlin. Only 100 Allowed In.” Stop calling it a council!

“Workshop” and “Working group” both sound better than “Council” to me
Or just “Meeting”
Nick Johnson @Arachnid 09:01
It just sounds a bit exclusionary and far more ‘official’ than it really is. Councils have closed memberships.
It also sounds pretty pretentious. Like “the Tokyo accords” or “the Geneva convention”
Jamie Pitts @jpitts 09:03
LOL. ok that is good feedback. The Magicians metaphor can go too far and communicate the wrong intention.
So if you feel that “Council” as a term is just not right for what this set of meetings will embody, say that here. And declare an alternative as well.
