I'm really not sure they will, in the same way that people didn't regret not 'recording their memories' before the invention of commercial film. People use the technology readily available to them at the time - then namely paintings or sketches. When Kodak arrived did these people look back to when the daguerreotype/calotype (like film today) was a niche product and regret not travelling to England or France for the 'real deal'? I'm sure they carried on getting their paintings made and were happy for what the impression of the paintings evoked. I'm not too comfortable with the idea of 'recording memories' - where will it end - with a chip inside our heads?
