It's nice to think we'll never be able to forget anything ever again, but the evidence is against you. An astonishing number of people don't know about Pearl Harbor. Our president is one of them. And his fans have already forgotten almost all of his personal history, because they don't want to remember it.

Also, back in the 1970's, John Berger made a persuasive case that physical architecture does not reflect society as a whole, but solely the moneyed classes. Only they can afford to hire architects to design and construct their vision of society's aspirations. It is very much a top-down operation, and as you suggest, may apply at least in part to digital architecture.
