Is it okay to attempt to write in the style of another person, and how is that done well?

I want to write like Neal Stephenson- I read Snow Crash and absolutely fell in love with the style. I'm trying to write a cyberpunk style book myself, and I have a good plot (I think), but I want to make it humorous. Stephenson's style works extraordinarily well, so I figured that I might as well piggyback on his signal, so to speak.
