What is going on right now, that in fifty or a hundred years, people will be saying "damn, I wish I was part of that"?

I'm thinking about Haight Ashbury in its heyday, bohemian Paris in the days of James Joyce, the Wild West days in the US. I'm interested in moments of cultural ferment that will be of extreme interest in the future. (I realize this may be tough to answer because it is hard to predict what current cultural milieus will be of lasting interest.) What is stuff that's really interesting, happening right now, anywhere in the world, that people will ruefully wish they had been part of in fifty or a hundred years?
