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.

    As for each individual,TED reveals your excellence,because everyone talks more rational and insightful here than in other platform.We may talk idly during the day,but at the end of the day,TED provides us a place to share deep thought,which is the quality of every human being.
