About This Project

In June 2006, in the “World’s Biggest Brain” perched atop the Hard Rock Café marquee in Times Square, I played host for a 3-day webcast for the Yahoo! Answers “Ask the Planet” event.

Deepak Chopra & Ben Hauck

Deepak Chopra & Ben Hauck

This large-scale event involved the building of a two-story structure topped by a big purple brain “with lobes and firing synapses.” Celebrities and interesting individuals were invited into the brain to for an interview with me and questions posed by Yahoo! Answers “Braniacs,” lucky Yahoo! Answers users who won a trip to NYC to participate in answering questions 8 hours a day for 3 days.
