MoMA adds @ to collection

I don’t know what to think of the move but the Museum of Modern Art in New York City has added the @ symbol to its collection.

The link actually has a fascinating history of the symbol including how and why it came to be used in email addresses.  I personally think it is not possible to acquire a symbol but they have at least made a decent reasoning behind it and at the same time taught me quite a bit about a symbol I use all the time.
