Source is the cause/beginning, and the end result/opposite is the effect, end, result, aftermath, and byproduct.

And here is a good list of appropriate antonyms for "source": aftereffect, aftermath, arrangement, backwash, by-product, cessation, close, completion, conclusion, consequence, consummation, corollary, creature, crop, decision, denouement, determination, development, emanation, end, ensual, event, eventuality, execution, finish, fruit, fruition, harvest, issue, offshoot, outcome, outcropping, outgrowth, payoff, proceeds, product, production, reaction, repercussion, returns, sequel, sequence, settlement, termination, and upshot.

Source is where it comes from. Destination is where it's going.

sorry this was a terrible question, we can all laugh about it now. Ha ha :P i was thinking 'user' because a user takes information from a source.
