VB.Net communicating with Outlook's calendar

Recently had Office Communicator installed at work as an upgrade/replacement for MS Messenger.
I like how it's able to determine if your contacts are in a meeting, out to lunch, etc.

I'm curious how difficult it would be to pull this information from Outlook's calendar in a VB.Net 2005 project?
Not necessarily looking for 'solutions' for this - just want to get a feel for how difficult/easy it might be...though some examples might be helpful.
