Let's say someone is going to buy SO and all its property, how much do you think it's worth?

Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.
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
I'm not sure what it's actually worth, but it's very likely Google will buy it for a few billion dollars, give it away for free, and somehow get even richer by doing it. Those guys are evil wizards, I tell you!
1 Billion dollars - pinky in corner of mouth
Whatever somebody's willing to pay for it.
Probably about three fitty.
$3.84 million or 44.72 million pesos.
That's a lot of franks and beans...
What currency we talking about here? The real question is of course what it will be worth in 6 - 8 weeks?
What about theoretical dollars? Sneezing Panda is worth billions!
It's worth $42, not more, not less.
I'm thinking of a number between
enough to cover Jeff's mortgage
enough to cover Jeff's mortgage, the next three mortgages, and five new cars
Wow, I found out this results too (source):
Stackoverflow.com is worth $ 390,447,000
Do you think it's that much?
Interesting question.I found a website link: http://www.worthofweb.com/website-value/stackoverflow.com
It is giving following price. $ 2,957,500,000
