When asked about some of his proudest accomplishments, Dr. Buckholtz’s main challenge was containing his list. Some of these achievements include the establishment of three information-technology marketplace business practices, including the enterprise software license and the Governmentwide Acquisition Contract (GWAC). He catalyzed a grassroots innovation program throughout a 27,000-person energy utility. Additionally, he helped pioneer three information technologies. He was also integral in the development of a grassroots line of business for the national committee of an American political party. Dr. Buckholtz’s work has spanned the fields of information technology, business, political science, and even particle physics, as he proposed a new theory of physics that includes the prediction of elementary particles. This theory, if proved, would make great strides toward unraveling the current mysteries of dark matter and dark energy and toward integrating physics theories.
