Should we stop using the word "suburb"?

We recently did a podcast for #urbanizeTHIS with Marco VanderMaas about The Missing Middle. You can check it out here: http://urbanizethis.com/210-marco-vandermaas-tells-us-what-the-missing-middle-is-all-about/

While the entire chat was really interesting, one thing that really got me thinking was the fact that Marco doesn't like word "suburbs", as it is not a true reflection of current city building.

I recently saw that Richard Florida said the same thing.

So, I've tried to stop using that word, but it is really hard to stop, as there isn't really a good alternative.

Do you use the word suburb??
