StackOverflow and its kin have a good set of references on this topic. Note that CSV can manage only very simple JSON; we really want native importers similar to what Microsoft Access tried with XML . I suspect one approach might be to convert JSON to XML then use Microsoft Access 2010 import.
Incidentally, this topic veered off unexpectedly into something that's actually relevant to my work life and a Strata conference I'm attending in a few weeks.
As of today here are some of my pointers ...
- What is “JSON” and what does it have to do with distributed computing? « DivConq: great reference (see below for DivConq series on Access)
- JSON - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: I liked the comparison to XML 
- JSON.org: points to libraries
- convert from json to csv using python - Stack Overflow
- Download JSON data and convert it to CSV using Python - Stack Overflow
- python - Convert JSON to CSV - Stack Overflow
For me this DivConq series was particularly useful because it placed JSON nosql processing in a familiar context - Microsoft Access.

Maybe I should start using Apache Cassandra to manipulate my Google Reader JSON archive and prepare it for WordPress processing. For example ... Cassandra Development Environment in Mac OS Snow Leopard « BigDiver.
