Powerful British lawmaker Damian Collins thinks 2018 will be remembered as the year that everything changed for Silicon Valley's elite.




He said governments around the world are getting their head around the damaging side effects of big tech and regulation will follow.




Britain is among those drawing up new tech laws, including around hate speech and inappropriate content, that could change the way firms like Facebook and Twitter do business.




Collins said America will be watching because the "solutions we design here could be models that become standard in the rest of the world."




He spoke to Business Insider after being named in the Tech 100, a ranking of the 100 coolest people in the UK tech industry.
