How "shared" notes behave:

A Memex note can have the following privacy states:

  1. Private
  2. Is private to you until you share it.

  3. Shared
    1. If you share a Memex note it becomes available:

    2. As a link to the individual Memex note. Like this.
    3. Via all shared collections that contains the webpage the note is on. Like this.
    4. Via the page link containing all annotations on a webpage, like this.
  4. Optional: Protected
  5. You can protect a note so it will never change its privacy status in a bulk action. Works for both private and shared notes.

Changing privacy of many notes at once

Sometimes you forgot to share notes on a page, or want to share them all at once, instead of doing the work of sharing each individually.

This is where the ability to change the privacy status in bulk is useful. Optionally you can put individual notes in "protected" state, they won't change their privacy status in those bulk actions.

Support a Venture Capital free service

We want to protect users and their data from profit maximisation incentives resulting from uncapped profit potential. Memex is built without equity-based Venture Capital investments and caps investor and team profits . We want to build a service that people are willing to pay for because it solves problems for them, not grow at all costs with free services to then build privacy violating business models on top.

If Memex is already useful, you can see yourself using it for a few years or you want to support an alternative way of running a business, you can support us with our $150 Pioneer plan while we are in beta. In return it'll give you (at least) 3 years of Memex subscriptions once we launch them.
