It's really a comprehensive summary! Love many of the inspired titles.
You may have this on mind (or may have even discarded it) but I'd consider adding an Appendix with:
a) bibliographical references (paper and websites). Sorry if this seems too obvious, but I haven't seen it included on the Outline...
b) an index of the museums (and projects) used as examples and case studies (in alphabetical order or following the chapters' order). It's true that some case studies are specified on the Outline but you mention and xcomment many more and a list would be useful.
c) a glossary of techy words (see comment on chapter 5 pt10)

Conxa - working on it! Will definitely include all of the above. I'm currently working on http://museumtwo.pbworks.com/Institutional-Sources-and-Sidebars to start organizing the projects and museums. It's also making me realize that some museums are perhaps a bit overrepresented...
