The truth wears off

The truth wears off, Jonah Lehrer, The New Yorker, 13 December 2010.  Recommended by Amer Diwan in his keynote at PLDI 2012.  It's hard to establish an effect by rigorous experiment.  This article describes cases, mostly medical, where a demonstrated effect becomes harder to replicate as time passes.

I liked the piece that radiolab did on this issue.

Though, it would be nice to see some elses take on this story given the recent news about Jonah Lehrer.
