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 get useful information quickly. The telegraph also allowed and encouraged people to learn about far-off places, and then to travel there themselves.

Today, algorithmic news, aggregator services, mobile devices, video streaming services, and other new technologies are again revolutionizing both information and travel.

The Bay Area Telegraph’s mission is to leverage these new technological advances, bringing travel information for Bay Area visitors, food, culture, activities 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 and advice.

We’re locals who love the Bay Area. We want to share it with you.
