Build it and they will come?

WHAT WE THINK

Must admit that the Teresa’s title for the post was the thing that first grabbed my attention. Ticking the box of ‘quote from one of my favourite films’.  Which got me thinking, how we can remember film quotes incorrectly to fit with our vision of the world.  To prove that point here’s the exact film clip for you to check out.

So why is this ramble into the world of film important?  It shows how myths become fact and how we do this with all sorts of examples in health and social media.  Teresa eloquently explores in her post the importance of community, networks and the hard work that goes into building shared purpose.  Deconstructing the modern myth that if you build it – they will come automatically.
