I found the book, "UNIX Power Utilities" by John Muster very helpful. It
covers more than just sed but there are nearly 40 pages of explanation and

In "A Scanner Darkly," was Philip K. Dick foreshadowing Web commerce:

hamburger as well as buy it; we'll sell it back and forth to each other
forever from our living rooms."
