Overwhelmingly, I am wrong!

My thinking: Time moves forward, if you're moving a meeting against the flow of time, you're moving BACK. Likewise, moving a meeting up would be to shift it to an earlier time...UP the calendar.

But I always just say the new time instead.

Uh oh, I think I've been wrong about a thing for a while...settle a debate:

I ask you to move it up an hour. What time is the meeting now?
