Wow!: Eyetrack III
The Poynter Institute, a school for journalists, has just released the results of a comprehensive and fabulously documented eye tracking study. Very interesting information.
They analyzed their data internally, and with external analysis by Jared, Jakob, Rusty, Adrian Holovaty and Alan Jacobson.
There are many interesting findings, which did you find most enlightening?

The most intriguing part to me is how the use of blurbs and smaller fonts attracts more attention from the user. I've been advocating blurbs on our intranet for a long time now as a better indicator to content on the other side of the link. This will just help me sell the need for blurbs in certain designs.
