Do you believe TED is elitist and exclusive?

My main reason for asking this question is to find out how you,the members feel about TED as a non-profit organization. I've recently been looking into TED because of a research paper for school and I've been aiming to argue against the idea that TED is elitist and that they are exclusive. However I would really like to hear from other people whether you believe TED is in some ways elitist and/or exclusive.

    May 31 2013: TED using site domain .com (Commercial) this enough to explain TED isn't Not-For-Profit. Reasonable if they act elitist and exclusive, because they have priority for business things. However, TED has given the opportunity to people under CC licenses. I thinks it's great deal.

      Jun 5 2013: Many not-for-profit organizations use ".com" simply because that's the first extension people think of, so it's easier to remember. I think that's the case with TED, as with my own non-commercial web sites.
