How accessible is TED?

Though I've enjoyed and been inspired by many TED talks, there's a nagging feeling that some presentations have been misleading. The disinclination of speakers to engage with their audience and sponsorship of TEDx events raises my concern that we may be denied the full picture.

Is TEDx accessible to those who may not have the funds to participate or defend their own work?.

    It cost my colleague his life when those determined to turn a wilful blind eye, determined to shut us out. .
