I suggest not using "-ity" words as they put you into a box. The more definitive the name, the more likely you will have to directly speak to a specific audience. Be more terse - and thus open up interpretations on the part of your audience. They will be more engaged. Alternates to your examples might be 'potentials' or 'possibles'. Witty names like 'musings' could work also. Good luck.

    An excellent overview of the human concerns implicated by the coming (and already here) pervasive computing / ambient informatics. Designers need to read this. (****)

    David Allen: Getting Things Done: The Art of Stress-Free Productivity
    I've read 100 "time management" books. This is the only one I recommend. Read it. I'm implementing the entire book, but it's easy to find gold nuggets which, implemented in isolation, will raise your productivity. The reason is that these techniques accept, rather than fight, the nature of our minds and our world. Consider this: You can't manage time at all. You get exactly 24 hours each day, during which you can manage actions. Relatedly, you don't manage priorities — you have them. It is counterproductive to pretend your priorities are other than what they are. (*****)
