When an article on the web is boring, chances are the author did not prepare it for reading on the web. Jakob Nielsen’s Alertbox for June 1996, Inverted Pyramids in Cyberspace [1] explains that you should start with the conclusion, followed by some supporting observations, ending with the background.

You can fix this by scrolling to the end of the article and reading it backwards, paging up as you go.
