@New York’s Museum of Modern Art.

According to this article on Mashable.com, the @ symbol has taken up residence in a new spot- the Department of Architecture and Design at New York’s Museum of Modern Art.

The @ symbol has achieved it’s most recent celebrity status from Twitter, but actually dates back hundreds of years. The article goes into a some really interesting detail about why it was even placed on the keyboard to begin with (for accounting purposes!) and draws the conclusion that the symbol has the power to connect people across every cultural border.

We can’t help but appreciate its global meanings- as the internet closes gaps from nearly every corner of the world, it seems only fitting that some sort of symbology go with it.
