Abstract When terminology gets people riled up, you know that something lurks beneath the surface. In this Whiteboard, Gerard Torenvliet describes and decries the loss of meaning that the term affordance has suffered over the years, as widely read authors have redefined it and as readers and users have muddied it. Gerard argues that clarity in usability work---and the ability to participate in requirements definition---depend on our using the term's original meaning, and he urges us to reclaim it.
