(Did you mean a fanzine reproduction method?)
The con ditto is named for the best-known brand of spirit duplicator. Thus, maintains Dick Smith, who once worked in a building that had housed that company, when not beginning a sentence, the name of the con ought to be spelled in lowercase, matching the duplicator's expired trademark.
Ditto moves around to different locations as chosen by The Ditto Masters, an informal cadre of past conchairs that controls the convention; Hope Leibowitz, the only fan to have attended all of the cons, is also a member.
Art Widner reports:
I was totally gobsmakt, gabberflasted & flatterd all to hell that 30 people came from all over the world to the most hard to get to (Panama City was easy) wild Mendocino Coast to help me celebrate. & they brot 15 bottles of single malt in the bargain. I didnt count, but somebody told me. In spite of my warning "No presents but yr presence" some of the bottles were presents. Thanx to Ian Sorenson & Yvonne Rowse from Scotland; I hope the chilly summer fog made them feel at home. & the 3 from Toronto, 2 from Detroit, & the usual suspex from Seatl & the Barea. Not to mention all my cool gchiln; Missy all the way from France, & the Tuckerized baby offn Mt. Baker..... Ive had sevral xcuses from various fen since, wch may b flattery, but i acept that they really wantd to b there but cdnt. Alan Rosenthal did a great job organizing it & i hav no complaints.
