how long until our society is seen as history?

More specifically, ancient history, much like we view the ancient Egyptians, Greeks, even Romans?

Will future societies, say, 1000+ years from now, be able to view our history we're currently recording on various modern media like DVDs, video tapes, digital files, etc... or will their technology be so advanced that ours will seem so primitive to them that they won't be able to see or hear it?

Look at us, just 30 or so years past VCR tapes, maybe 40 years since 8-track tapes finally died, and we are rapidly losing the ability to view any content on those mediums. In another 100 years will anyone even remember what VHS and Beta were? As it is now, I doubt most millenials even know what 8-track tapes were.

What if we hit a technological wall? 

INteresting question

You're asking a bunch of guys posting on the OG, which has technology that's almost as old as VHS and 8-tracks.
