RootsTech: Reputations Systems for Genealogy Video

As I progress in my Genealogy practices I’ve come to realize that I need to use a system to determine the validity of data in my systems.  I’m not really happy with the one that comes with my software and was looking for a definitive methodology to grade sources.  For example, I find that death certificates are generally poor in assuring the year someone was born.  Census records when a person is typically better and draft registrations are probably the most accurate.
When I saw one of the videos from the 2012 RootsTech Conference dealt with “Reputations Systems for Genealogy“I was really excited.  Hopefully, the video would give me some great ideas about how to quantify the reputation of various sites and sources.  
As you can probably tell from my tone so far, I was disappointed.  For nearly the first 20 minutes he points out the reputation features of Amazon eBay, and StackOverflow.com.  Then he launches into walk-through of the Yahoo Design Pattern Library.  Finally, 51 minutes into the 62 minute talk he finally starts to talk about reputation characteristics of genealogy sites.  It was a lot of background for little substance.
At that point he shows new.familysearch.org, which is really a bummer because it isn’t available to the general public.  He show how little the site has on reputation of data and provides his recommendations on what it should have.  I think it is in bad taste for a Family Search employee to present thing he’d like to see in a Family Search product (even though it isn’t available to the general public).  The sad thing is that that the director of development for that product also presented at the conference.  Anyway, he does talk briefly about the reputation elements shown on Geni, Fold3, and Ancestry. 
The presenter sounded like he was reading from a script; he had little energy and was not entertaining.  All-in-all it was one of the worst presentations I’ve seen from the RootsTech Videos.  I’d pass on this video.
