According to the article, the oldest computer in Rushdies collection is a Macintosh Performa. The library prohibits visitors from turning it on and searching through the files, but there is, as it turns out, a way to make a visitor feel as if they were looking through it. The Rushdie Born-Digital Archives Working Group, a team of software engineers, librarians, and archivists at Emory University combined their talents to build an emulator which allow visitors to get a glimpse of what was on Rushdies mind when he worked on his Mac. Rushdies digital archive, in its old Mac setting, contains the playbook of his life: bank statements, newspaper articles, drafts of stories, at least one screenplay, and folders called Names For New Child, as well as a Games folder, which allows you to see what Rushdie was playing while working under the death threat. This trove of data, produced by one man, could allow scholars to investigate the intellectual evolution of a celebrated writer and how his life was affected by changes, technological, physical and mental.
