So you could write to the internet?

We came across this video today, which is a 1994 news clip on defining what the internet is:

What does the "@" symbol mean? Seriously? I like how it wasn't even the proper @, but actually an "a" with a circle around it. Since it's part of everyone's email, I don't think I've ever confused it with something else. 

On the other hand, I'm not sure if I could properly define the internet to someone who's never used it.
