newsweek:

A group of American Quakers are operating what they call a “new underground railroad” to help a few LGBT Ugandans flee their country, where a recent law imposes harsh penalties for homosexuality. The Friends New Underground Railroad (FNUR), based in Washington state, sees itself as continuing the work of Quakers who historically helped slaves escape the American South.
As of this Monday, they say they have worked with unnamed Ugandan “conductors” to fund and coordinate passage out of the country for 107 lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender Ugandans, nine of whom have reached Sweden, while several dozen others are “being processed for asylum status in countries around the world,” according to the group’s FAQ page.

The Uncivilized Books Lab is proud to announce that we’re partnering with cartoonist Erik Johnson to bring to life his infinite loop comic, Kozmo-Knot. He’s been working on this unique object for 10 years! We we saw Erik’s prototype, we knew we had to help out! Here’s a little about the project:

Kozmo-Knot is the story of a spaceman and a caveman, a campfire and a blaster, a rocket ship, asteroid, a rocky off-world landscape. It’s a kinetic pantomime that takes a reader on a far away journey, then right back where they started … to begin again.

But really, you should check out the project via it’s Kickstarter page, there’s loads more info there! Help us bring this unique object to life! For even more Kozmo-Knot related art and sketches check out this Tumblr.

What is Uncivilized Books Lab? It’s a new label for something we’re already doing: hand made books and comics. Even though we’ve entered the mass market book world with our Graphic Novels a couple of years ago, we still love making comics by hand. It’s how we started out! It allows us to work with different formats, and artist that we might otherwise not be able to work with. We can nurture new ongoing projects like Derek Van Gieson’s Eel Mansions, or do a series of idiosyncratic architecture zines like the Structures series. It our research and development laboratory. And, frankly, it’s loads of fun to do! Even more soon!

JIBO, The World’s First Family Robot

#TIL that Kickstarter videos are an - almost independent - subcategory of corporate flat-pack futures. And this one is their new leader. It’s too cute to be true. So let’s wait for the first delivered batch. Nevertheless, the team makes an excellent impression. I hope they don’t neglect the IoT-discussion about data protection & surveillance.

JIBO is the perfect robot for everyone in the family. Because JIBO is an open platform, his skills and uses will grow, helping and delighting in ways even we haven’t even imagined…
