Digg has a link to this story about a Cisco engineer who won a $10,000 longest commute award from Midas.

Mariposa resident Dave Givens makes a 186-mile drive — each way — five days a week to his job in San Jose.

The electrical engineer has been doing that commute since 1989, spending seven hours every day getting to and from work at Cisco Systems Inc.

There’s a solution:

  1. Dave: meet telecommuting.
  2. Telecommuting: meet Dave.
  3. Cisco: get more out of Dave.
  4. Dave’s family: meet Dave.
  5. Dave: meet your life.
