The key hypothesis is that the IT industry lure us into the IT world with a promise to solve our information problems. Do we sign the contract, we will recognise that the IT industry can´t keep the promise. One reason: they themselves lost sight over there own game. Therefore they have to invent new tools continiously. LIS professionals should not leave the field IT professionals. LIS professional should rather put stress on to reveal the difference in the value chain between data – information – knowledge. Information and knowledge is brainware and not produced by hard and software in the sense of IT philosophy. Against the background of the language game of Jean-François Lyotard, the author explains the information and knowledge society as language game invented by the IT industry. Furthermore his beliefs of postmodernen LIS professionals and the consequences involved for LIS traning will be presented.
