My commute takes a total of 2.5 hours a day. I'm making good use of the time by taking the bus, and working on the road, but it's still a long time to be driving. I do work from home one day a week, but I still haven't found the perfect "home office environment;" until now.
A company called OfficePOD is building beautiful, self-contained "work pods" that you can stick in your backyard. It's time to skip the commute.
