Dr Sanku Jo has an enviable job title, 'Web 2.0 Evangelist'. To be honest, it could have been invented solely for him, his enthusiasm for web 2.0 was authentic and boundless.

Dr Jo works on the KT Window Project, which is one of KT's web2.0 initiatives. An evangelical role is required in a traditional telecoms company as it represents a huge shift in terms of company philosophy, administration and business management. Now they have to turn their attention to open standards and international business and even have to rethink the very fundamentals that their business is based on – carrying data.

Dr Jo kindly allowed me a sneaky peak of one of their internal projects, SOIP, meaning Services-Over-IP. Functionality wise it was like the evolution of the landline and looked a bit like a desktop iPhone designed with the entire family in mind. You could imagine it sitting on the kitchen table. Running a standards based web apps service you could read the news, write memos or check the traffic conditions. KT also have plans for it to be in ATMs and customers having the ability to login from any public terminal.
