But modern reality is that digital culture is ubiquitous and history of any kind is a minority interest.
Then again it probably always was, except for a small minority of curious dilettantes and future empire builders.
Although it's easy to find teens who have no idea who the Beatles were, it's more astounding to me that the culture of the lates 60s to late 90s has been so persistent, and is still being rediscovered and enjoyed.
The decades before that don't seem to have been either as popular or historically sticky, and the only teens who know anything at all about pre-20th century history and culture are the small minority who are rich and pampered or have parents who are aggressively aspirational and middle class.
At the same time there's a new code culture with teens and students making their own art with tools like Processing, Scratch, PureData, and others - and when they grow up they move into mobile development and/or web design.
Some of them build real stuff out of real hardware too.
