A natural history of the @ sign

Way cool site which gives a comprehensive overview of that most pervasive of 21st century symbols – the humble @ sign. Did you know, for instance, that the Czechs call it a zavinac or ‘rollmop’ because the shape resembles a rolled up herring in a jar? No neither did I.
