Let's say someone is going to buy SO and all its property, how much do you think it's worth?
Good question! How big a problem is SO, and how can we convince the industry at large to buy out Jeff et. al. before all of our productivity is sucked away? Perhaps we should multiply the average time a user spends on SO by the average IT person's salary and the number of users.
For illustrative purposes, if we're conservative and we say there are:
- 10,000 regular users
- Averaging 5 hours a week on SO
- Paid an average US$25/hr
That's US$1,250,000 per week. Therefore, SO has cost US$65 million in lost productivity in the past year alone. It must be worth that much to close it down, for all our sakes, before it's too late!
According to http://www.websitevaluecalculator.com/ it is worth
$3.84 million or 44.72 million pesos.
That's a lot of franks and beans...
Wow, I found out this results too (source):
