Stack Apps is a question and answer site for apps, scripts, and development with the Stack Exchange API. It's 100% free, no registration required.

When running the code

$.getJSON('http://api.stackoverflow.com/0.8/questions/4', function(data) {
    // Do some stuff here....

I get the error

Failed to load resource

Am I accessing this wrong?

I suspect your problem (as I commented) is XSS related.

Try using JSONP instead of raw JSON; we just added support for the jsonp parameter.

Sweet! Just what I needed. I suggest that the jsonp parameter be added to the global parameters list here stackapps.com/questions/1/api-documentation-and-help –  Greg Bray May 27 '10 at 19:52

As Kevin says, XSS. Try this instead:

$.getJSON("http://api.stackoverflow.com/0.8/stats?jsonp=?", function(data){
