You know we've been trying to pull together a comparison between FamilySearch's volunteer approach to record indexing and Ancestry.com's subscription-based indexing model. Ancestry charges users a subscription fee, which it then uses to pay transcribers to index records.
A source within FamilySearch reveals that 2 million names are being indexed per week. At that rate, FamilySearch could index the complete US Census Collection in... 5+ years.
Come on, people. If we're going to make volunteer indexing work, you better pick up the pace. Sign up at www.familysearchindexing.org.
