Would it be possible for SO to make money by selling data to major players in the software industry? Specifically, information about which language/platform/framework features give developers the most trouble? E.g. Microsoft for the .NET platform, Google for Android, Apple for iOS, and so on. That could lead to better documentation, life becoming easier for developers, and platforms in general improving?
Would it comply with SO's terms of service if a third party dev made an app that does this?
I hope this question is on-topic for MSO.
