Please post the materials directly to a PBwiki page (rather than in a .doc file)

In your Affordances do not list products but only what the tool must be able to do (for example, don't list Skype, but list a tool that can support voice communications on Internet)

I suspect you will find your dimension of Functions needs to be expanded as this is really at the heart of your topic. Look for the ways that your dimensions interact (where they intersect) and you will find your use cases are easier to identify.
