I grant the technical correctness of your claim, but with two major
caveats:
1. The first major users of the internet, right after the initial
darpanet military users,
were the scientific community, and in post-soviet Russia, Russian
scientific websites
have exploded in number. Though it is possible that sites might be
named only in Russian,
this is most unlikely as the international *lingua franca* of science
is English.
This is especially all the more so, as:
2. The name: "International Academy of Information Science" can hardly
be though to be provincial
in its intent, and certainly is strongly suggestive of an organization
that would NOT avoid contemporary
means of information propagation.
