I guess that this is one of the reasons that these newsalerts are
still beta, as they can't always tell if a web page re-publishes them
from the past, as this one was.
You can see in
titled "Articles from 1998 "

a link from
    04/06/98 - What is a Webmaster?
    Do you know what a professional Webmaster does all day?
to your article in question

The article's author Jennifer Kyrnin <http://webdesign.about.com/mbiopage.htm>
does list her Perl Guide picks on
and a google search
returned 61 links.  Perhaps we will hear from her soon.....
