<nettime> PPlist & Trafik (two Swedish email lists die)

As of midnight CET today, two of the largest swedish mailinglists are
closing down forever. The two lists has had as much impact in Sweden, as
nettime has had internationally. 

PPlist was a high signal, low traffic list for mainly IT professionals,
and Trafik was a low signal, high traffic list for the whole IT community.
The lists was started by Mikael Pawlo and Erik Hörnfeldt respectively.
Both of them are two of the most famous IT personalities in Sweden.

The shutdown has already spawned some new lists, and more will follow. 

The mail announcing the shutdown of the two lists follows, which translate

"Three years is fine. That is why Trafik and PPlist has the same life span
as the replicants in Blade Runner. Three years.  After that it is time to
go on and make something new. And now it is only 8 hours left until
midnight. That is when the both lists will die."
