The inventor of the clam strip has died.
Of course there has to have been a first person who cut clams up, battered them, and deep-fried them; yet, despite my own research on invisible inventions, I find it utterly fascinating that someone actually can be credited for inventing something like the clam strip. Or the Caesar salad.
Of particular interest is the fact that the clam strip was basically invented to solve the problem of mass-producing a seafood dish that would freeze and travel well. So there actually is a technology angle here.
