ICANN doesn't funds DNSO. DNSO funds comes from constituencies and more
recently, an iniciative of Voluntary Funds has being launched (hope DNSO
can get donations)

I though we was talking about audio only. Have you ever realized that
sometimes members of Names Council, at the time of the meeting, not always
are they in their office where they can use their computers to engage in a
videoconference? Many of them use the telephone, for example.
But you are right, ICANN neither DNSO, neither constituencies has to
search expensive services for videoconference. There are tools that are
free for use to make videoconference. The Non-Commercial Constituency has
being using VRVS and succesfully setted it up in Melbourne and Stockholm
meetings ( http://www.vrvs.org ). Maybe you want to take a look to it and
contribute with more ideas.
