Enterprise IT trends for 2017: ‘Fog’ computing, Internet sensors, the second coming of silicon …
Step aside cloud computing, 'fog computing' is here

MIST Computing: the perfect technical architecture paradigm?
Mist computing might be THE solution bridging the gap between central cloud and edge decentralization. A mist device is an edge/fog device with super-powers similar to the ones found in cloud servers. For example, our mist devices allow:
Local analytics and decision-making data using big data DB and processes
Learning and adapting machines
Redundant, Resilient and Highly Robust data and apps
Root of trust similar to HSM modules found a cloud server area
Data access control mechanism to enforce privacy consent at a local level and security & privacy by design / by default
Obviously, Mist and Cloud computing are complementary to each other as offline and online usages are complementary to each other. Nevertheless, in a perfect distributed architecture, the very interesting idea is that a mist application does not require the cloud and vice-versa!

I backordered FogStorage.com with dropcatch last year, the only time they lost a domain with me so far, went to someone in China :\

Some hope for you fog investors. I got a $250 offer one of my names. I countered alot higher so no deal. But it gives hope for the market
Thanks for posting this, I have fogsolutions dot net and almost didnt' renew it, estibot says only worth $10 but I went ahead and renewed after reading your post
Ive dropped a good amount of fog names. I still have a few. I think if it emerges its still going to be about 4 to 5 years :/
I dropped more than a handful myself, kept 3 of them.
FogHosted in king and 2 others.
I always consider tech names to be a very long term investment so I always ask myself before buying such names if I'm prepared to hold them for at least 5 years. If the answer is yes, only then I consider registering them.
It's also a good idea to register the better ones for at least 5+ years ahead.
One offer in the sea of domains with not one sale.... That is hope?? Really?
I think ill keep FogEngineering.com and thats it.
Snails pace progress, but still a consistent up trend year on year.
I still get traffic (made a few bucks in parking rev off one) and I recently had an interesting IP crop up on my server out of Silicon Valley.
Nothing has changed with the tech, just don't expect mass rollouts and main stream adoption of the tech/term to happen over night. I'm happy to sink 5-10 years of renewals into the handful of names I still have. One has seen corporate interest to date (cisco).
All these upcoming tech threads share a similar pattern, folks reg way too much and renewal bills force them to drop and they become disillusioned.
Let's look at Cloud. It first cropped up in 2006, the cloud showcase thread on NP started in 2011.
This is the first major cloud sale that I can find which happened in late 2010.

Patience is key, of course so too are good names.
I'll keep only:
That's it for me
Not one sale on this thread in 2 years or whatever it is feels too long, although I had to wait roughly 3 years before I started selling off some of my 3D printing portfolio. At the end of the day, it's all speculation, especially when hand registering future trend domain names, although would expect to eventually see some sales within this niche...
I have ca. 200 fog domains.
If we compare 2014 from 2017 then this is the abyss.
i got a second lowball offer on a fog domain! i own about a dozen seems like this is the the only one they want eh... i hope it give some hope. idk
As previously stated, this is definitely a game of patience. Im down to maybe 20 or so fog names only kept the best, but I will continue renewing them as I still see fog gaining traction.
Here is a huge expo coming up:
Separate names with a comma.
