You'll first have to download JSON.net

Here's a simple example....

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Net;
using Newtonsoft.Json;

class Program
    static void Main(string[] args)
        using (WebClient webClient = new System.Net.WebClient())
            WebClient n = new WebClient();
            var json = n.DownloadString("http://data.mtgox.com/api/2/BTCUSD/money/ticker_fast");
            string valueOriginal = Convert.ToString(json);

I tried it too but an unhandled error (An unhandled exception of type 'System.Net.WebException' occurred in System.dll) occurs. And i am not too sure why this happens. Any idea why?
