In this presentation at the Downtown Los Angeles Drupal meetup at Droplabs on June 19, 2012, Christefano Reyes (@christefano) of Exaltation of Larks (@LarksLA) briefly describes some of the work performed at a barn raising and code sprint that Droplabs hosted recently for a Los Angeles non-profit.

Discussed are the RealName and RealName Registration modules, as well as the social impact of policies that enforce the use of first and last names on today's social networks such as Facebook, Google+ and, as shown in this presentation, Community Weaver, a social platform for the international timebanking community.
