isnad.org is the website for a project to develop isnad, a greasemonkey application to tooltip Wikipedia and other wikis with detail about the provenance of its content. isnad is an open source project. The potential exists for a commercialisation as "Isnadi", a name for which the project owns the relevant .com domain.
