A change can be evaluated by means of ethical and pragmatic values. Progress is change which entails higher evaluation in comparison with the former state. We ask a question whether progress evaluated by means of pragmatic values is also progress in ethical categories and vice versa: is something receiving better ethical evaluation something that also receives better pragmatic evaluation? The answer to both questions is 'no'. Whether progress measured by pragmatic values is progress in ethical dimension is decided by those who make and use that progress. A critical area for progress is information technology. A contemporary form of information technology is computer science technology. The technology brings tools for transmitting, storing, processing and searching for information. It is the most powerful information technology. Its origins date to the early 21st century. We are incapable of foreseeing its results. Computer scientists as creators and users of the technology should be particularly trustworthy people. An ethical reflection has accompanied the development and propagation of computer science in the United States. Today, along with globalization, it has become a global issue.
