Measuring Behavioral Complexity in 'Lines of Code'

This visualization provokes a lot of thought out of a simple bar graph by suggesting a connection between a device or application's range of behaviors and the lines of code it took to create it.

The vis gets especially interesting by throwing weird data points in, like the length of a bacterium's genome as compared to a video game or car. There are a lot of points of debate about that comparison and about the way google services are treated, but it remains a compelling representation about how complex technology is becoming.
