    This person will probably get around $60,000,000 after everything is taken out. What would you do with that kind of money?

    Invest half, save 20 mill, and blow 10 mill.

    The hard part will be figuring out where to invest so that you're making money and not losing it. Especially after the past year where people have been losing their investments and retirement funds in big ways.

    With 30 mill, just diversify. I would do mostly tech, I can judge what tech will be popular even if I don't like it. Apple computers would be one, Sprint and Qwest would lock in the communications/tech sector, you couldn't lose either way. Losing some money is fine, as long as you pull out before it falls too far.

    I would continue publishing my website...but just until I ran out of money, of course.
