Collapsed items?

Sorry for uneducated question, but what is the purpose of some items being collapsed by default? Can anyone explain the logic behind this? Thanks a lot ...

The collapsed ones are the "page 2" items. Originally, a sidebar was introduced for this purpose. Then someone suggested listing them together with the page 1 items, showing only the headlines. This experiment is what you see now. In the article, however, Thom says they are going back to the sidebar.
