Community Interviews (Part I)

I thought it might be fun and interesting to conduct a series of interviews with relevant members of the Bennu community so they could share with the rest of us their thoughts about the project and its future. Some of the answers are known to those of us that have been around longer, but I considered them to be of interest to those new to the community.

Obviously my first choice was SplinterGU, the main developer behind Bennu.
I sent him some questions and today he's emailed them back to me, I have translated his answers to English trying to be as accurate as possible in the translation, but just to be on the safe side, below you'll find attached the original responses from Splinter in Spanish.

Bennu gone wild: English speakers, Wii, Xbox, Wiz & more!

Lately there is a lot of things going on regarding the Bennu community:

First of all, we knew about a new forum being born for the English speakers. The list of users is still short, but some really interesting things have sprung in the forum's short life.
You can find it at http://www.bennugd.co.uk

Pixel, one of the oldies on the Bennu community has been working recently on getting Bennu to work on the Nintendo Wii console.
