The short answers are, no, no, and not much. TAP is in maintenance mode
at Stanford, since Guha went to Google in 2005 and I went to Yahoo later
that year.

The RTE system in particular was replaced by a script-based system that
resembled LISP. The newer system was much faster and more flexible than
RTE turned out to be. Nonetheless, scale never went over 30-40 sites,
though the RDF itself grew to the limit of what you could load on a
1.5GB machine even when compressed.

The semantic search demo on http://sp11.stanford.edu/ is likely to be
the final iteration of TAP as a system.
