(Did you mean a fanzine reproduction method?)
Ditto, founded in 1988, is a small, friendly, fanzine-fan convention held irregularly in the fall.
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.
