I’ve often asked me the same question. Especially given our move to digital storsage for all things knowledge. Imagine finding a USB stick a thousand years from now, when we couldn’t even read a 20-30 years old media on our currently computer… I was discussing this theory with a friend the other day: I predict that within 5 years, a substantial portion of the archeology field will in fact start focusing on this, where for the 1st time in their field, they’ll be worrying about what to leave their future colleagues, rather than exploring what our ancestors left us with.
