Ray made that weird @-Symbol into what it is today: „In 1971, he established the first networked email system on ARPANET (the internet's ancestor), using the familiar user@host format that's still in use today. It wasn't until 1977 that his approach became a standard, and years more before it emerged victorious, but it's safe to say that communication hasn't been the same ever since.“
