I was curious and wondering: How many different types of Lego bricks have been produced since the start of the company in 1949?

How many different kinds of bricks... or how many bricks in total? An all-time tally of all bricks ever made would probably be in the trillions. –  BoltClock Dec 28 '11 at 8:05
    
Edited question to be less ambiguous. –  daviesgeek Dec 28 '11 at 18:14

One source places the number of different types of LEGO elements that have been made at 2,200. It is unclear whether or not DUPLO, Click-its, or Bionicles etc, etc, are included in that count.
