Useful but not well-known web tools

Recent/Obscure web applications and tools filter. I am talking with a government department (Economic Development) about using web based applications and tools both internally and externally. I've got the basics covered, but it would be nice to include mentions of some less-than-famous apps or tools that have been of use elsewhere. If there are any that have provided some mileage for you or your organisation, especially govt ones, I'd love to hear about them.

San Francisco Rotating Rooftop Vents: What are they? Why do they rotate?

I've noticed these rotating vents since I've moved to San Francisco almost 4 years ago, but never found an answer. They are on a lot of the roofs out here, and seem to rotate with the wind, but sometimes not. Do they rotate with the wind? If so, why? Is it a smell issue? I am sure there is a basic, logical answer, but my google-fu is failing me today!
