Content Mixing Desk: WOOT!

Now this is a nice UI element; Facebook has a content control based on a mixing desk metaphor:

mixing desk at Facebook. There are varilus sliders against each type of content that you move up and down to show more or less of that type of content on your site

Now, the fun really begins when you compare something like Yahoo Pipes to the repatching feature of Reason . I guess I was hinting at this with my "processing" elements in the mashups stencil I designed a while back. Each processing module creates an input to the mixing desk, which then modifies the 'dashboard'.

I think I can feel a prototype coming on...
