We are in 2019 and privacy no longer exists. In less than one generation, the internet has become a mass surveillance machine. The business model that propels this machine can be summed up by a simple saying: If it’s free, you’re the product. All the traces we leave of ourselves on the internet are captured, stored and accessible to both States and web giants… and this trend is rapidly intensifying. By giving a voice to our local hacker scene, HAK_MTL explores Montreal’s contribution to the global fight for privacy.
