Today's scientific - technological progress, the third and the fourth scientific and technological revolution (the third largely been achieved and the fourth is already moving toward) does not continue to the last two – they, with themselves carry a truly new way of life, and, in particular, a new way of obtaining the scientific discoveries and a new method of communication. Primarily, the center is the progressive development of science – knowledge. So strong scientific and technological progress, of course, as a consequence has a number of socio-economic and social implications: radical changes in the social structure, migration of human labor in the sphere of "tertiary", decentralization almost of all major areas of economic activity, changes in ownership and production relations and, finally, the first steps are visible towards de-urbanization, as well as changes in the overall value system of the modern world. The reverse side of this scientific-technological wave is misuse of information technologies. The fourth scientific-technological wave appears with the motto: "It is good all the more obstacles on the road to better“.

Keywords—information society, knowledge society, organic connection between science and production, synergy of scientific fields, misuse of information technology.
