About the Bay Area Telegraph and How to Contact Us

Our Mission

In the 19th century, the invention of the telegraph revolutionized the news industry. Information could suddenly flow at the speed of light, and even in remote places, this new technology allowed people to hear the latest news, almost the moment that it happened.

Today, algorithmic news, aggregator services, mobile devices, video streaming services, and other new technologies are again revolutionizing the news, and especially local news gathering and reporting. The Bay Area Telegraph’s mission is to leverage these new technological advances, bringing hyperlocal Bay Area news, food, culture, politics and more to our readers, wherever and whenever they consume information. Our goal is to keep this a free service, so that everyone has access to our reporting.


Thomas Smith is Editor in Chief of the Bay Area Telegraph. Smith brings rich experience as a professional news photographer who has spent 5+ years covering the Bay Area, as well as a writer for Bay Area and national publications including the Bold Italic and NewsBreak. As CEO of Gado Images, a social enterprise digitizing the world’s visual history, Smith has extensive experience working with newspapers, news photos, and Bay Area institutions.

Smith holds a degree in cultural anthropology from the Johns Hopkins University.
