@ at Unicode 0040

Nobody really knows why the commercial at is called commercial at. It has appeared as a shorthand for both English 'at' and Latin 'ad' but its first documented use was in a religious text that ends with '@men'.

It could also derive from the French 'à', the ibero-arabic 'arroba' (an old measurement unit), or something else entirely. This is probably why it's still so exciting to use it in novel ways. Support your local INTERN@T CAFE!
