that reference is striclty about web pages...

actually, a number of studies (and my own user group testing) 
shows that people scan the first screen, and then jump all the way 
to the last screen (the bottom of the page) and scan again...

stuff in the middle on pages more than two screens in length gets 
lost...  pages of more than one screen in length do have a 
noticeable drop-off in eyeballs for anything after the first screen...

it's not JN, but it is tested...
