Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
DMM offers a compact platform to blog your day to day happenings and views on whatever interests you in within specific subjects which define our existence. It also offers Vaults for you to store private records under any subject you want. Only you have the keys to the vaults. Only you can give access to them to anyone else.
The File Storage and Synchronisation Platforms are Business oriented facilities designed to facilitate day to day operations. For example, they allow multiple number of people to work on the same files, create new files, sync each and every file in their systems, mobile phones and other devices.
The net result is that thousands of files come into existence. This is true not only for businesses but for individuals too. Searching for one or the other file in the clutter becomes a major task. How many files do you have in your Cloud Drive?
Yes, you can share data on these platforms. It is easy is if you want your data to be in public or want to share it with someone you know. You can do that by E-mail or URL based sharing. In the latter case, all your data is public and you have no control over it.
However, sharing becomes complicated if you want to give access to only one or more documents – not the whole data – to an unknown party. First, you will need to laboriously identify the document/s you want to share and give access to the nominated party. Two, you will need to make sure that giving access to a limited number of documents will not make available all the data to that party.
DMM provides a platform for convenient and safe sharing. One, Public blogs are available to anyone anytime. Two, in Private Vaults where your data are organised by yourself, you can readily identify what you want to share with whoever and whenever you wish. You do not compromise the rest of data because the data is segregated in Vaults organised by you
One other important consideration: When the User of Synchronised platforms is no more, the whole of her/his data lies in the wide world of the web. Who will access it? Or know how to do it? It dies in ether.
In contrast, DMM will hand-over the Vaults to your Executors, who will decide what to do with your data according to your Will.
On mainstream social media platforms, the readers of a Post can interact with its Author and each other. Multiple comments/observations are made - good or bad or ugly. Two Effects:
- One, the Posts are usually of temporary interest; they have a minimal life span and soon disappear into the ether. All is forgotten even by the Author.
- Two, rarely a constructive conclusion emerges useful to the Author or others; opinions are just lost in a welter of comments.
In contrast, the DMM platform brings order to the chaos of diverse interactions on a post among its readers. The Objective: The Author of the Post should be able to reap a constructive outcome from her/his Post, whatever the intention: professional, personal, general reflections, humourous, sarcastic or whatever. How?
- First, a comment is notified only to the Author. Others followers of the Post do not know about a new comment unless they make an effort to check the Page. The need to make that effort helps to filter out the idle, the argumentative and the trolls. The Page is not visible automatically; so there is no impulse to write whatever comes to a head unless they go to the Page.
- Second, a reader of the Post can directly contact the Author from the Public Blog page without making her/his comment public. If the former agrees, a private conversation can develop without intervention from others. In effect, personal contact between the Author and others seriously interested in the subject provides a confidential forum to pursue it.
Yes. However, this issue has legal implications which will need to be addressed on a case by case basis.

Categories of Your Data
After considerable research, DMM has identified the Ten Categories of activities – it is not an exhaustive list - which constitute a human being’s day to day existence. Blogging within these categories will sum up a person’s existence, and will thus constitute his or her own ‘book’ in the Library of Minds. That will be available to all DMM subscribers now and in the future.
In the first instance, we recommend that you use the ‘Other’. However, you can also write to [email protected] and we will determine the possibility of adding another category within the limits of the site’s parameters.
At present, no. However, we are working towards that goal
None. You can commence blogging immediately after you sign up. You are also given a Private Vault free of charge. Lifelong. You only pay for additional Vaults you need. See Vault Charges.
You can buy and close Vaults as you please. If you close a Vault you have bought, there will be no refund.
Closure of my DMM Account
You have two weeks from the day of the closure of your account to download the contents of your Private Vaults and empty them. If you require more time, you can mail us at [email protected]. In all cases, the Vault and its contents will be deleted three months from the date of closure of your Account.
Your public blogs will not be deleted. They will remain ad infinitum as your ‘book’ in the Library of Minds.
