In the first of our series of #firefly25 anniversary interviews, Charles Arthur, technology editor of the Guardian is interviewed by Claire Walker, Firefly’s founder and CEO. In 1988 Charles attended Firefly’s launch party as a reporter for Computer Weekly and has been a frequent recipient of Firefly’s PR efforts (on behalf of our clients) ever since.

Charles is known for voicing his views and frustrations with poor PR operators - here he talks candidly (but politely) about his relationship with PR operators over the past 25 years and how the internet has changed everything.
