Charles Arthur


Charles Arthur has been a top-level technology, science and health journalist for over 20 years, as technology editor of The Guardian from 2005-2014 and science and technology editor at The Independent between 1995 and 2004. In that time he has covered the rise of Google, Apple, Facebook and Twitter, the mystery of the BSE epidemic, the crash of Concorde and the promise of artificial intelligence.

His current interests include the threats and promises of social media, machine learning, smartphone use, and “mixed reality” (any combination of virtual reality and augmented reality). He produces a daily list (web or email) of about 10 links around topics from technology, science, and almost anything else at The Overspill.

He is the author of Digital Wars: Apple, Google, Microsoft and the battle for the internet, about the business battles in search, music, smartphones, and tablets between the three best-known companies in technology over the past 20 years. It is in its second edition and has been translated into Chinese, Korean, Thai, Russian, Finnish, Japanese, Spanish and American.

Charles Arthur’s book Cyber Wars: Hacks that Shocked the Business World was published in 2018.

During 2016-17 he was a visiting fellow at the Technology & Democracy project at Cambridge University, examining the effects of the internet and social media on political polarisation.

He’s married to Jojo Moyes, who has sold a lot more books than him – though none about business or technology so far.
