I won't go to the meeting, but I have to agree with  Joe's 
interpretation of the TOS.

The §1 of the TOS ("By continuing to access or use Second Life after the 
effective date of any such change, you agree to be bound by the modified 
Terms of Service.") makes this rather clear.  And §11.2 is worded in a 
similar way and IMO restates this intention.  Unlike other parts of the 
TOS/TPV, I find those two reasonable clear and fair.

I.e. the way I took it (although IANAL) is that by agreeing to the new 
TOS at login I merely agree I'm bound by it when accessing SL after the 
effective date.
