Urban Planet is a daily roundup of blogs from around the world dealing specifically with urban environments. We’ll be on the lookout for websites outside the country that approach themes related to urban experiences and issues.

A few weeks ago, the folks at Fast Company published an article on 7 Ways to Disrupt Your Industry. Many of the ideas seemed pertinent to public space, according to the folks at Project for Public Spaces. They made their own adapted list of 7 ways to disrupt your public space. These include: eliminating visitor pain points, reducing complexity, cutting costs, using digital placemaking tools, encouraging conversation, being inclusive, and making loyalty easier.
